The 36th Annual North Carolina Oyster Festival is excited to continue hosting the North Carolina Oyster Shucking Championship! Test your skills as the area’s fastest shucker, earn prize money, and secure a spot in the National Oyster Shucking Contest in Leonardtown, Maryland.
The Shucking Contest will be Saturday, October 15th at 3:00 pm.
The winner of the North Carolina Oyster Shucking Championship will receive a plaque, $275 cash, and $200 traveling cash to be sued for travel to and from the National Oyster Shucking Contest. Should the winner of the North Carolina Oyster Shucking Championship also win the National contest, he or she will receive an all-expense paid trip as a representative of the United States to the International Oyster Shucking Contest held in Galway, Ireland.
There will also be an amateur division for those shuckers who are not professional but still want to test their skills.
All rules and regulations can be found in the North Carolina Oyster Shucking Championship registration packet.
