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.
The popular event will feature live entertainment, top-notch artisans, various shows, rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. And of course a food court, where volunteer chefs and culinary pros work side-by-side, cooking and serving unique oyster, clam and other seafood concoctions along with traditional festival fare.
Open rain or shine.
