“The Oyster Festival is a treasured seasonal tradition for all of us who love Long Island," said Catholic Health President & CEO Patrick M. O'Shaughnessy, DO, MBA. "Catholic Health is honored to partner with the Town of Oyster Bay and is grateful for the leadership of Town Supervisor, Joseph Saladino, and his team for making health, safety and quality of life such a priority."
For the past 40 years, approximately 200,000 Long Islanders and visitors from throughout the east coast participate in the region's largest waterfront festival... The Oyster Festival!
The beautiful and historic village of Oyster Bay, New York, hosts an outstanding weekend of family, fun, food and festivities under the auspices of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Rotary Club and its Oyster Bay Charitable Fund.
We are celebrating the festival's 40th anniversary- paying homage to the oyster, by serving it in every conceivable form. On the half shell, fried, chowder, and this year wood-fired, are highlights of our Oyster food court. Seafood, such as shrimp and clams, as well as more traditional festival foods are available as well!
Aside from the food courts, our festival boasts of the traditional excitement of oyster shucking and oyster eating contests, a huge arts & crafts pavilion, Newton Shows amusement rides & games, Kings of the Coast Pirate shows, the John J. Fireboat, the Nao Trinidad tall ship, the New Belgium Craft Brew Tent, and continuous live entertainment!
Join us Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th between the hours of 11am-6pm.
"Las Vegas Sands is so proud to support The Oyster Fest as an iconic Long Island event that truly celebrates the character of this incredible community. We look forward to shucking oysters alongside our new neighbors, as we take in history and spirit of the North Shore."
