The Oyster Festival October 15th & 16th
The 2022 Oyster Festival, presented by Catholic Health will take place on October 15th and 16th, 11am to 6pm.
“The annual Oyster Festival is a wonderful celebration of community and camaraderie,” said Catholic Health President & CEO Patrick M. O’Shaughnessy, DO, MBA. “At Catholic Health, we feel a deep connection to community and to Long Island’s heritage. It’s an honor to partner with the Town of Oyster Bay and the Oyster Bay Charitable Fund for this weekend event, one that truly reflects Long Island’s unique character.”
The Oyster Festival is a project of the Oyster Bay Rotary Club and run by the Oyster Bay Charitable Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission includes providing a family friendly event, promoting the beauty, history and resources of Oyster Bay and supporting local charities through fundraising activities during the Festival.
The Oyster Festival has a long tradition as the East Coast's largest waterfront festival with more than 150,000 attendees each year. The Festival is known throughout the region for its fun mixture of new activities and old favorites that are certain to entertain the entire family including live entertainment, ships, top-notch artisans, pirate shows, midway rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contest. And of course...the Food Court, where volunteer chefs and culinary pros work side by side, cooking and serving dozens of unique oyster, clam and other seafood concoctions along with traditional festival fare.
