Oyster Festival 2017

October 15, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The annual Oyster Festival will take place this year on Sunday, October 15, 12:30-5 pm. A party that celebrates both the oyster and the fun of a day by the Bay with family and friends, the festival offers food from top local eateries, music from local bands, children’s activities, craft offerings, and Avery’s own “Choose It!,” a way of filling your calendar with fun all year round.

Oyster lovers can get their fill any way they like ‘em: raw; fried in a basket, platter, or roll; in stew; in soup; in sushi; or in shooters. Lots of other fine food will be available, including hot dogs and hamburgers for the kids.

Also appearing on the festival stages will be the Eastman String Band, with Tim and Savannah Finch, Jon Glik, and Stefan Custodi playing Bluegrass and Americana; Coastal Flats, an acoustic combo featuring Andy Garte and Gary Harmon playing everything from the Beattles to the Blues; and the husband-wife duo Dana & Jeremy, who specialize in popular music from the 1930s to today.
