Event Date: September 17th, 2022 at 5:00pm
Address : 60 Woodland Road, Maplewood, NJ, USA
Town : Maplewood

In keeping with the tradition of this event, festivities will be held on Saturday, September 17 from 5:00-10:00pm under tents at The Woodland (60 Woodland Road) and will feature a live band, DJ, bagpipers, food and beverage pairings, and the popular oyster bar. Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased at or at St. James’s Gate in Maplewood.

“Our committee has worked diligently over these past two years to continue to honor our mission and raise necessary funds to support local families during COVID-19,” said Grace Miller, co-founder of the Robert. J. Miller Foundation. “Although our annual Oysterfest event was on hiatus during the pandemic, we were grateful to present donations to more than 12 families in the area who had either a sudden loss of a family member or are facing stress due to medical bills or financial crisis during these difficult times. We can’t wait to gather under the tents again to celebrate and provide health resources on Melanoma awareness for our community.”

2022 Updates: Unfortunately, this year’s event will not offer general admission tickets and children's activities as the organizers remain cautious of COVID-19 protocols in the local community for indoor events and working with young children. We will also be refraining from on-site skin screenings for Melanoma but will have resources available with recommendations for individuals to find local dermatologists.

The Robert J. Miller Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Maplewood, NJ, was created in 2015 in memory of Robert J. Miller, a local Maplewood resident of many years who passed away after a two-year battle from Melanoma. The Robert J. Miller Oysterfest event raises funds for Melanoma research and reserves donation contributions for local families who are facing an unexpected medical crisis. Over the last eight years, the Robert J. Miller Foundation has raised more than $100,000 as part of these efforts. Donations are always accepted at For more information, contact
