Check-In Locations

This year we will have 3 Official Shellabration Check in Locations: Little Creek Oysters + Greenport Harbor Brewery (Greenport location, not Peconic!) + First and South restaurant. You may go to whichever site you would like to pick up your wristband package, and enjoy your complimentary first pairing featuring shellfish from our on site raw bars alongside a tasting pour of Borghese Winery Rosé for the Bays or a Greenport Harbor Brewing selection. 

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.


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!
