Oysterfest 2016 - our 6th Annual Bivalve Bash

Oysterfest, an all-day celebration of the bivalve; that beautiful, pure, nutrient loaded, calorie neutral, aphrodisiac of a pearl in a shell! Oh, oysters.

We're keeping the date late in the season, due to it being the beginning of the oyster season, when cooler waters prime the flesh and make the most varieties available. Could be brisk, though the last four years have been sunny and warm - either way, it will be a great day for oyster eating!  Event is rain or shine.

This year we will host the Southside Aces as always, and this year we take on Jaedyn James & the Hunger (Desta saw them at Vieux Carre and was blown away) Looking forward to the stage presence of these incredibly fun bands!

We're inviting back our celebrity chefs for our 6th Annual Oyster Shucking Showdown. Ever more competitive, the shuck-off is a highlight.  So, join us to help continue our outrageously successful and briney event - at the years most unique festival.
