The Oyster Bay Rotary Welcomes You To

The Oyster Festival

The 32nd Annual Oyster Festival is a project of the Rotary Club of Oyster Bay. The Rotary Club of Oyster Bay, a part of Rotary International, is a volunteer organization whose members embrace the motto of “service above self.”  (read more...)

The Oyster Festival, the East Coast's largest waterfront festival with more than 200, 000 attendees, returns this October for its 32nd year, offering a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family. The Oyster Festival is a project of the Oyster Bay Rotary Club and funded by the Oyster Bay Charitable Fund. The Oyster Festival offers a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family including live entertainment, Tall 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.

Our Storied Past:  More than 150 years ago, Theodore Roosevelt – the 26th President of the United States – was born to a wealthy family that summered in Oyster Bay not far from the waterfront property that today bears his name. To honor his memory, community leaders organized a parade to celebrate his 125th birthday. The parade proved so successful that it provided the roots of what would become the Oyster Festival in 1983.

Admission is FREE
