The Great Baltimore Oyster Festival returns to Baltimore's Inner Harbor! The festival includes live music, oysters (raw, fried, and grilled), seafood dishes from local restaurants, beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, and family-friendly activities.
New this year is the Oyster Shucking Contest, pinning professional oyster shuckers against each other and the clock! Learn about oysters, their vital role to keeping our waters clean, how they grow, and where they come from.
The event is free to attend but you need to purchase a ticket to eat oysters. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the event and include your choice of six raw oysters, six fried oysters, or four grilled oysters.
The festival will benefit the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor Initiative.
