Description

The Oyster Festival, the East Coast's largest waterfront festival, returns October 19-20, offering a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family. The Oyster Festival originated as a hometown parade honoring Theodore Roosevelt before evolving into the largest outdoor festival on Long Island, under the auspices of the Oyster Bay Rotary. Every year, more than 200,000 visitors flock to an Indian-summer weekend on the waterfront in downtown Oyster Bay – drawn by live entertainment, Tall Ships, top-notch artisans, pirate shows, midway rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. And of course…the Food Court, 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.  Saturday's Festival will end with Grucci fireworks at 7:00 PM.  Sunday Festival will end at 6:00 PM.  See you there!
