ABOUT US

The Oyster Festival, the East Coast's largest waterfront festival attracting more than 150,000 attendees each year!


The Oyster Festival takes over three football field sized areas plus four blocks and offers a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family including live entertainment, ships, top-notch artisans, pirate shows, amusement rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. And of course...the Food Courts, 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.

The Festival is one of the largest cooperative non-profit fundraising events on the east coast hosted by a 501C(3) organized by the Rotary Club of Oyster Bay.

ARTS & CRAFTS

Two huge tents along the beautiful bay house a variety of vendors selling handmade wares.

 

These crafters are carefully chosen by Mel Warren, the arts and crafts coordinator since 1996, who began his relationship with the Oyster Festival in the early ‘80s as a vendor himself, selling handmade leather crafts.

 

Booth fees help support a myriad of charitable efforts and to create the Oyster Festival.
