Oyster Festival


The Oyster Festival originated as a hometown parade honoring Theodore Roosevelt before evolving into the largest outdoor festival on Long Island, under the auspices of the Oyster Bay Rotary. Every year, more than 200,000 visitors flock to an Indian-summer weekend on the waterfront in downtown Oyster Bay – drawn by live entertainment, Tall 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. Visit the Railroad Museum and rail yard to see the new additions to a growing collection.

The Eighty-seven foot US Coast Guard Patrol Boat Bonito will be visiting the Oyster Festival, Oct. 14 and 15, ready for boarding. The Bonito is a Protective Cutter working out of Montauk and involved in all aspects of Coast Guard activities including rescue work. People will be able to board the boat.
