Wellfleet Oysterfest


Every year, oyster lovers descend upon the Outer Cape for the Wellfleet OysterFest. Now in its 17th year, the festival boasts an impressive lineup of family friendly activities including food from local vendors, live music, celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, children’s activities, eco tours,  a road race, and plenty of beer and wine. And of course, there is the main event. The annual Shuck-Off Competition with cash prizes and an opportunity to go on to U.S. National Oyster Shucking Championship. (No, really that’s a thing.) The event spans two days: Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th and runs between 10:00am-5:00pm. Tickets are $10 per day for adults. Children under 12 get in free. To keep up to date on all the happening of the weekend, check out the OysterFest homepage here.
