The Maine Oyster Festival

Visitors flock to Maine from around the globe to enjoy our world class seafood, and Maine oysters are no exception. Check out the slurp-tastic raw oysters available from sea farms & mobile shuckers. Learn to shuck, soak up some oyster education, get up close and personal with oyster farm tours. Watch the pros throw down in their own shucking contest, The Big Shuck. Two stages with live music all weekend long!
