Check-In Locations

This year we will have 3 Official Shellabration Check in Locations: Little Creek Oysters, Greenport Harbor Brewery (Greenport location, not Peconic!), and First and South. You may pick up your wristbands from any of these three locations. For our sponsors, please pick up your wristbands at the Greenport Harbor location.

Wristbands will not be mailed, they will be held for you under the name you reserved them under. Weekend Wristbands will be available for pick up beginning Saturday at 11am. Sunday Only Wristbands may only be picked up on Sunday beginning at 11am.


Shellabration is SOLD OUT!

I see you’re sold out. Are you really sold out? YES! Unfortunately we have reached capacity for this event. We are limited in the number of Shellabrants we welcome to Greenport each year in order to ensure a great Shellabration experience for all involved. If you weren’t one of the lucky 1,000 people who snagged a wristband this year we are so sorry to disappoint you and hope you can join us next year. Wristband sales always begin at least one month prior to our annual event and we have sold out in advance of the event consecutively every year in recent history, so we always encourage reservations to be made as soon as you see wristbands are available for sale!

Our participating Greenport Shellabration establishments DO enforce the wristbands, and have planned to make available only as many of the pairing specials on their special Shellabration menus as there are participants in the event. We ask that you please not put any additional strain on them by trying to participate in the event without a wristband. Most restaurants are still serving their regular lunch menus, and have dining space available for those not participating in Shellabration, so by all means we invite you to enjoy these fantastic establishments if you are in Greenport during Shellabration weekend. Be sure to check out the many fun things happening in Greenport this holiday season and reserve those wristbands well in advance next year!

 We appreciate the overwhelming support and interest in the return of Greenport Shellabration for it’s 10th Anniversary year, and look forward to continuing the tradition in support of SPAT and Back to the Bays next year. If you’d like to make a contribution to these efforts, we invite you to visit our  donation page


Shellabration is an annual culinary celebration that showcases local shellfish and benefits Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program’s SPAT Program and Back to the Bays Initiative. It is traditionally held the first weekend of December in Greenport Village and has been enjoyed by thousands of "Shellabrants" through the years. In 2020, we had to pivot from our traditional restaurant walk by offering a virtual Shellabration experience, but we’re so excited to bring back the in-person event this year-which happens to be the 10th Anniversary of Greenport Shellabration! Ticket and sponsorship package sales are available on the website ShellabrationCCE.org.

2021 Greenport Shellabration marks our 10th anniversary Shellabrating with our supporters. We are bringing back this very special in-person event to Greenport!
