Oyster Festival 2017








Each year, the North Carolina Oyster Festival provides top notch entertainment, showcasing some of the best area beach and country artists, hosts a shag dancing competition and offers the delights of the Oyster in the form of several contests.

In addition to this year’s lineup of great music, fun and belly-filling contests, we are excited to bring WWAY to our stage with Evening News Anchor, Daniel Seamans, as the Emcee of the festival. He will provide a Live Remote directly from our stage (and maybe if the crowd asks nicely, he will play a ditty on his guitar too). We also look forward to welcoming Clean Eatz as they present Red’s Kitchen with host Evonne Varady. Evonne will be doing a live cooking segment featuring Oysters during our festival on Sunday, October 22nd.
