2021 Festival Contests

We have a competition for you!  Buy a ticket to taste one of the amazing Oyster Stews our local restaurants have made, show off your lightning shucking speed skills or race your competitors and fill your belly with as many oysters as you can before the timer stops. If spectating is more your speed, then mosey over to the contest tents to cheer on the competitors. Either way, you are sure to be entertained!
