The Great Baltimore Oyster Festival returns to Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Saturday, October 14th from 1pm to 5pm at West Shore Park! The festival includes live music, oysters, seafood dishes from local restaurants, beer wine, & specialty cocktails, and family-friendly activities.
NEW this year is the Oyster Shucking Contest, pinning professional Oyster Shuckers against each other and the clock! Learn about oysters, their vital role to keeping our waters clean, how they grow, and where they come from.
The event is FREE to attend but you need to purchase a ticket to eat oysters. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the event and include your choice of 6 Raw Oysters, 6 Fried Oysters, or 4 Grilled Oysters. Sorry, no refunds can be given on any tickets sold.
The festival will benefit the Chesapeake Bay Foundation & Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor Initiative.
