The inaugural Ocean State Oyster Festival will be held September 19 in Providence, RI, on the Riverwalk. The oyster industry in Rhode Island is growing rapidly, and the Festival seeks to celebrate this revival and the environmental sustainability of Narragansett Bay.

Local oyster growers will be offering samples of their home-grown bivalves at the Festival.

A $25 ticket to the Ocean State Oyster Festival gets you a half-dozen locally sourced oysters, raw or restaurant prepared; a local micro-brew beer or glass of wine; live music & DJ; food trucks; shucking contest.

Children under 12 free. This is a rain or shine event.

10% of ticket sales will go to Save the Bay’s youth program, Explore the Bay.
