2016 Oyster Party


2016 Oyster Party

The eagerly awaited QPMA’s Oyster Party celebrate each year with a sell-out crowd!

Ghislain Perron was the man behind the oyster party tradition, which started with 50 or 60 participants in a tavern in Anjou and later relocated to its present-day venue at Le Rizz Receptions. While the original party was strictly for serious oyster lovers, its format has changed over the years to accommodate more participants, with a gourmet buffet and an open bar. Peter Fogarty (Metro Fogarty) took over organization of the event in 1995. He passed the torch to Pat Calabretta in 2005, who handed over responsibilities to and Stephan Schmekel (Fresh Del Monte Produce (Canada)) in 2010. Since 2014, Chris Sarantis (Canadawide) has the job of ensuring its continued success.
