The Oyster Festival, the East Coast's largest waterfront festival with more than 200, 000 attendees, returns this October for its 34th year.

The Oyster Festival offers a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family including live entertainment, ships, top-notch artisans, pirate shows, midway rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. And of course...the Food Court, where volunteer chefs and culinary pros work side by side, cooking and serving dozens of unique oyster, clam and other seafood concoctions along with traditional festival fare.

Profits from all FOOD COURT sales directly support 25 participating local charities while proceeds from carnival rides and merchandise sales is donated to additional charities supported by the Rotary throughout the year.

Admission is FREE. Parking is FREE. And MOST activities are FREE.

A family-friendly event, the Oyster Festival remains Alcohol-FREE and Pet-FREE.
