Oyster Festival 2017
October 15 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm $6.00
Captain Avery Museum Oyster Festival
Admission $6 ($2-12 and under)
The annual Avery Museum oyster festival has it all: food from top local eateries, music from local bands, children’s activities, craft offerings, and Avery’s own “Choose It!” way of filling your calendar with fun all year round.
Oyster lovers can get their fill any way they like ‘em: raw; fried in a basket, platter, or roll; in stew; in soup; in sushi; or in shooters. Lots of other fine food will be available, including hot dogs and hamburgers for the kids, if you can get them to stand still long enough.
Because the kids will be busy watching live crab races, getting their faces painted by local artists, making crafts, and playing games.
Meanwhile, the adults can sip beer or wine while the Eastman String Band fills the air with Bluegrass and Americana or Coastal Flats, an acoustic combo, plays oldies, goodies, and everything in between.
For those in a shopping mood, local crafts and an assortment of “Choose It!” items and experiences will be for sale.
