THE OYSTER FESTIVAL GOES DIGITAL FOR 2020

OYSTER BAY, LONG ISLAND NY

THIS YEAR THE FESTIVAL FORMAT IS MOSTLY DIGITAL RATHER THAN PHYSICAL.

Due to the pandemic, instead of the traditional physical events, the 2020 Oyster Festival will be mostly virtual while still honoring the tradition of fundraising for local charities and supporting local restaurant businesses in Oyster Bay.  A restaurant week is planned to run week-long for the local community to enjoy fresh oysters and mouthwatering dishes.

 

You can still watch and cheer on the much heralded Oyster Eating and Shucking Contests from the safety of your mobile device or home computer. Please continue to check out our website frequently to stay up to date and access special web-based cyber festival events!

**THE ORIGINAL PHYSICAL FESTIVAL WILL RETURN TO IT'S FORMER GLORY IN 2021

 

THE 2020 DIGITAL OYSTER FESTIVAL
 

The safety of our guests is the most important priority of the Festival.  The Committee has determined that the Festival, which attracts 150,000 visitors, cannot safely take place during this pandemic in its current physical form.  To continue to honor the Festival's long standing tradition of supporting local charities, the Festival will take place this year in digital form.
 

Please help support these charities through our GoFundMe campaign. The monies raised will benefit local charities, as the funding they receive from the Festival is critical in allowing them to serve the many who count on them for support and assistance throughout the year. 

   

We look forward to the Festival returning in 2021 to its original grandeur along with new and exciting experiences. For this year, please be our guest and enjoy our Festival in digital form through the magic of this website that will include the famous Oyster Eating & Shucking contests and other nostalgic shares.
