The Oyster Fest is a one day tribute to the mighty mollusk so many of us know and love. It is little wonder that the Oyster Festival has been the highlight of Charleston’s “January-doldrums” for the past 29 years. Early on Sunday morning, two gigantic tractor trailers
filled with 65,000 pounds of oysters roll onto the polo fields at Boone Hall Plantation. Oysters are sold by the bucket. Aside from plenty of oysters, there’s a “Food Court” offering taste-tempting selections from some of the Lowcountry’s most popular restaurants.
Activities Include: the oyster shucking contest, oyster eating contest, live band on the main stage, children's area and more.
