Mystic River Oyster Festival
Join us for a day of “all things oyster” at our third Mystic River Oyster Festival on Saturday, September 28! Gate opens at 9 a.m. Festival starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
This festival offers an opportunity for Museum visitors to learn about the oyster fishery and to meet and support area growers! Sample many delicious oysters from the region: vendors will sell oysters at 3 for $5. A cash bar with beer* and wine will be available.
Plus, enjoy live music, guest speakers, demonstrations, children’s activities, and of course, a shucking contest!
