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 30 years. Early on Sunday morning, two gigantic tractor trailers filled with 80,000 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.
Advance tickets may be purchased at any of the 10 area Southcoast Community Banks, Boone Hall Farms or the Mount Pleasant Visitor’s Center, and by going to our website.
