Falmouth Oyster Festival 12th – 15th October 2023
Date posted 07.01.21
Falmouth Oyster Festival celebrates the start of the oyster dredging season, the diversity and quality of Cornish Seafood and in particular, one of the last remaining traditional oyster fisheries, dredging by sail and hand punt.
Each year, festival goers can enjoy a cookery master-class from a celebrity chef, together with cookery demonstrations by leading local chefs, oysters, seafood, wine and local ale, children’s shell painting, sea shanties, a town parade, and live music, an oyster shucking competition, a Falmouth Working Boat race and marquees brimming with Cornish produce. The Falmouth Oyster Festival is a must for all oyster, seafood and maritime heritage enthusiasts!
Falmouth Oyster Festival has seen an increasing number of Cornish food and drink producers promoting their quality produce alongside the longstanding craft fair stalls in the festival marquee. Festival visitors can savour the expanding range of mouth watering Cornish food and drink, both on site whilst taking in the festival atmosphere or to take home and enjoy!
Amazing day out, best day of our holiday for kids and adults!
