The 2014 Oyster Fry, with fresh Texas Gulf Coast oysters and crafts for everyone, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 3:25 to 6:25 p.m. at the Prather Brown Center Cafeteria, 211 S 13th in Frederick. This year’s serving times were chosen in honor of Frederick’s 25th year serving oysters.
Diners at Frederick’s Fantastic Oyster Fry will have their choice of fried oysters or raw oysters. The dinner also comes with homemade slaw, chips, bread and a drink. Homemade desserts will also be available for a minimal cost. Advance tickets may be purchased through the Chamber of Commerce office or at participating businesses in Frederick. Tickets may also be purchased in advance by credit card through a secure website at www.frederickokchamber.org. Patrons are encouraged to use this secure site, as this will allow the Chamber office to process your order much more quickly. Tickets will also be available on the day of the Fry at a slightly higher price.
A craft show will run in conjunction with the Oyster Fry, right next door at the brand new Frederick Elementary/Middle School Gymnasium. Forty-five craft vendors will offer a wide variety of items for sale and exhibit, including toys, pottery, goat soap, candy, jewelry, woodcrafts, leather crafts, candles, needlework, and much, much more. The craft show will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
