EVENT OVERVIEW

EACH YEAR, FOR THE PAST (ALMOST- EXCEPT FOR COVID YEARS) 39 YEARS, APPROXIMATELY 200,000 LONG ISLANDERS AND VISITORS FROM THROUGHOUT THE TRISTATE AREA 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 ROTARY CLUB AND ITS OYSTER BAY CHARITABLE FUND.

 

WE ARE CELEBRATING OUR 39TH YEAR OF PAYING HOMAGE TO THE OYSTER, BY SERVING IT IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE FORM. ON THE HALF SHELL, FRIED AND IN CHOWDER, AS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR FOOD COURT AREAS. HOWEVER, OTHER SEAFOOD SUCH A SHRIMP AND CLAMS, AS WELL AS MORE TRADITIONAL FESTIVAL FOODS ARE AVAILABLE FROM MORE THAN 30 FOOD BOOTHS. ALL FOODS ARE PREPARED AND SERVED BY VARIOUS OYSTER BAY CIVIC AND NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS, MAKING THE OYSTER FESTIVAL ONE OF THE REGIONS’ MOST SIGNIFICANT FUNDRAISING EVENTS.

 

ASIDE FROM THE FOOD COURTS, OUR FESTIVAL BOASTS THE TRADITIONAL EXCITEMENT OF OYSTER SHUCKING AND OYSTER EATING CONTESTS, A HUGE ARTS & CRAFTS SHOW, AND CONTINUOUS ENTERTAINMENT. IN ADDITION, WE ALSO INCLUDE AMUSEMENT RIDES, AND A CHILDREN’S ENTERTAINMENT AREA. 

 

OYSTERS ARE UNIQUE TO THE OYSTER BAY COMMUNITY WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN HARVESTED FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. OUR FOUNDING SPONSOR, OYSTER BAY BASED, FRANK M. FLOWER & SONS, HAVE CONTINUED THIS TRADITION SINCE 1876. THEY ARE THE ONLY SURVIVING ORIGINAL HARVESTING OYSTER COMPANY IN NEW YORK STATE. MORE THAN 60,000 OYSTERS ON THE HALF SHELL ARE CONSUMED EACH YEAR AT THE 2 DAY EVENT. WE ARE THRILLED TO BE ABLE TO SHARE THIS SPECIAL BOUNTY OF THE SEA WITH OUR NEIGHBORS.

 

OYSTER FESTIVAL IS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT LINKING BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT AND THE NON-PROFIT SECTORS IN THE BEST TRADITION OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY.

 

JOIN US SATURDAY THE 15TH AND SUNDAY THE 16TH

THROUGHOUT THE PARKS, HARBOR AND VILLAGE OF HISTORIC OYSTER BAY!
