The Pemaquid Oyster Festival, now in its 12th year as an annual celebration of the working waterfront and the Damariscotta River, will be held this Sunday, September 30, 2012, the Schooner Landing Restaurant in Damariscotta.

Last year over 12,000 oysters were served at the event, which benefits the Edward A. Myers Marine Conservation Fund. The celebration includes music, educational exhibits, boat rides, and lots of oysters harvested fresh from the Damariscotta River that morning (other foods are available). The event is free of charge and takes place from noon to dusk.
