Fiesta Oyster Bake
Thomas J. Henry Is Proud to Sponsor the Fiesta Oyster Bake
2016 marked the 100th Anniversary of Oyster Bake, and San Antonio received top musical talent performing a variety of popular genres. Headlining acts included Kevin Fowler, Chevelle, and the legendary Dennis DeYoung of Styx. Families were also able to enjoy games, concessions, and a kid’s zone, all provided by local vendors.
This year’s event featured six stages, 35 bands and entertainers, an estimated 3,000 pounds of beef and chicken fajitas, and 100,000 oysters, resulting in a whopping 10,000 pounds of recycled oyster shells that can be used to form new reefs along the Texas coast.
Further, proceeds from the event went to benefit St. Mary’s University students, faculty, and staff. These proceeds are essential in providing full or partial tuition scholarships and other forms of financial assistance to St. Mary’s brightest students.
