36th Annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival

Come on out to Boone Hall Plantation on Sunday, January 27th for a shuckin' good time at the 36th annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival. One of the many wonderful things about Charleston is the array of festivals throughout the year. Whether you are new to the area or a true native, this is one event not to be missed. Oyster roasts are a quintessential Lowcountry experience, and this festival offers oysters galore plus so much more.

As the main attraction, oysters will be available in abundance. Buckets of oysters are purchased with festival tickets, and come with the all-important sides: hot sauce, cocktail sauce, horseradish, and crackers. Come armed with your own oyster knives and gloves, or purchase them onsite. If you're game, enter the oyster eating contest or the oyster shucking contest. Or just watch the spectacle from the sidelines - sure to be entertaining!

Of course, what festival is complete without live music and a fun kid zone? No worries, you'll find that here too. There's also a "food court" featuring some popular local restaurants that will serve other food, wine, beer, and assorted non-alcoholic drinks to ensure that everyone's taste preferences are catered to. This is not only the biggest oyster festival in the world, but also a charity fundraiser. Make plans now to be a part of this year's festivities.
