About Us

Run by a Non-Profit, for the Benefit of Non-Profits

The Oyster Festival is unique since it is run by a non-profit (Oyster Bay Charitable Fund) for the benefit of 27 non-profits within the confines of the Oyster Bay - East Norwich School District. The festival committee consists of volunteers from the Oyster Bay Rotary Club and other community groups. The committee has been working hard since November to make this year's Oyster Festival the best it can be!

The Oyster Festival is a fun family festival, with something for everyone. Tall Ships, a petting zoo, live music, delicious food, carnival rides, arts and crafts, antiques, interactive exhibits, harbor cruises, and Audrey Avenue - our version of Main Street USA! The Oyster Festival is an alcohol free event.
