Celebrate the tideflats! Every year we welcome the public to our beach to learn about oysters, oyster farming, and life in the Hood Canal, aquatic and other. We call this beach ho-down the Hama Hama Oyster Rama. It's not the biggest party in the world, but it might be the biggest subtidal one!

The Rama features tours with intertidal ecologists and oyster growers, u-pick oysters and clams, an oyster-sports competition we call the Shuckathalon, a beer and wine garden, kid's activities, live music, and various delicious food options. Every year, the Rama benefits local Hood Canal charities.

Tickets are needed for everybody 16 and up (this means folks 15 and under get in free). Tickets get you into the event and entered into a raffle drawing. Food, drink, oysters and clams are available for purchase using $5 tokens. You can buy tokens ahead of time (highly recommended) or at the event for cash or credit.

2018 update: tickets launch April 1!
