Ahoy! Pirates And More At Long Island’s Oyster Festival

15 Oct

We’ve already demonstrated our love for Lobsters, so now we’re giving their marine friends, the oysters, a little attention. This weekend, the mollusks take center stage for the Oyster Festival, the East Coast’s largest waterfront event, in downtown Oyster Bay. On tap? Live entertainment, Tall Ships, local artisans, pirate shows, rides, and, but of course, the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. Plus, the food court will be serving dozens of unique oysters, clams and other seafood concoctions from a clutch of culinary pros. And, you can ditch the eating shame cycle at home—all of the profits from the event fund Rotary Rides, a charity that provides door-to-doctor service to disabled residents needing transportation.
Saturday October 16, and Sunday, October 17, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit the website here.
