Oysters, microbrews, live music and so much more come together for two days every year on the first weekend in October. Hosted by the Shelton Skookum Rotary Club Foundation and attended by thousands, OysterFest is home to the West Coast Oyster Shucking Championships and is Washington State’s official seafood festival.
The festival also features a popular cook-off, hands-on water quality exhibits, and is itself a giant a food pavilion with nearly 100 unique items on the menu. Your culinary adventure supports about 100 local non-profit service clubs and organizations, as well as funding scholarships and local community improvement projects.
A few days prior on October 6, area fourth-graders will be treated to Kids Day at Oysterfest, a full day of educational fun on the beach environment, sponsored and led by WSG.
