Oyster Festival 2021
THE 40th NC ANNUAL OYSTER FESTIVAL IS
OCTOBER 16th & 17th, 2021!
The NC Oyster Festival is a long-standing tradition in Brunswick County and this October would have marked the 40th anniversary.
The decision to cancel the 2020 event was not an easy one. With no clear direction from Governor Cooper’s office on when mass gathering restrictions would be lifted, the Brunswick County Chamber and NC Oyster Festival Committee determined the safety of our community, volunteers and vendors were priority.
While we will all be waiting until 2021 to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Oyster Festival, you will have an opportunity to participate in some “39 ½” activities. A special commemorative t-shirt has been designed by long-time Oyster Festival artist Keith White. Raffle tickets will also be sold for $100 for a chance to win a stay at one of two OIB beach houses.
Contact the Brunswick County Chamber for more details on these exclusive opportunities.
A long-standing tradition, the annual NC Oyster Festival brings together toe-tapping music, culinary delights, unique shopping and the regionally celebrated Oyster to thousands of tourists and locals each year in Shallotte, NC. With two full days to enjoy the festival you will be able to walk the grounds and peruse the variety of vendors showcasing their artwork and crafts, bring your beach chair and find a spot by the stage to listen to our featured entertainers, enjoy the competition as a spectator or go for the gold in one of our Oyster contests. And what’s a festival without the food? We wouldn’t know because we offer a variety of cuisines including oysters showcased in an assortment of mouth-watering ways.
