Ready for the 2013 NC Oyster Festival?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Maybe you like oysters, maybe you like festivals, maybe you just like the beach…no matter what it is that you’re looking for, the 2013 NC Oyster Festival has something for you!

The festival is scheduled to take place right here in Ocean Isle Beach, NC on Saturday, October 19th and Sunday, October 20th of this year. The #NCOysterFest is in its 33rd year, and we expect that many of the same activities will be available for visitors again this year – including things like a highly varied assortment of oyster and other seafood culinary treats, entertainment for the kids, live music, food and craft vendors, and the infamous Oyster Stew Cook-Off and Oyster Shucking Contest. Admission fees this year will be $5 per person (kids 8 & under are admitted for free).
