2014 Wellfleet OysterFest

The fourteenth annual Wellfleet OysterFest will take place the weekend after Columbus Day, Saturday and Sunday, October 18 & 19, 2014 from 10am until 5pm in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This two-day family festival celebrates the town's famous oysters, clams and shellfishing traditions bringing together locals and visitors alike for a weekend full of hometown flavor and big time fun! There is something for everyone: local cuisine, arts and crafts, educational programs, cooking demonstrations, children's activities, walking tours, live music, a road race, and the annual Oyster Shuck-Off competition.

Visit our www.wellfleetoysterfest.org as the event draws near for a full schedule of activities.

The 'Fest is produced by Wellfleet Shellfish Promotion and Tasting, Inc. (SPAT), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization devoted to fostering a greater understanding of the town's shellfishing industry, to preserve its history and traditions and protect its harbor, aquaculture and wild fisheries. The event is made possible through collaboration with the Town of Wellfleet, the support of many generous area businesses and shellfishermen, a dedicated group of volunteers and, most importantly, the weekend's enthusiastic attendees.

Last year an estimated 25,000 people walked through festival entrances paying a nominal admission fee for the first time ever! This comes from an effort to keep the event safe and sustainable for years to come. Proceeds from the ‘Fest fund SPAT’s educational mission including a local college scholarship program, community grant awards and initiatives to help the shellfishing industry. To date, SPAT has given back more than $175,000 to the local community. 

Support the shellfishing and aquaculture industries by offering a donation or getting involved. To find out how to help contact info@wellfleetoysterfest.com.

Admission is $5 for a one day ticket or $8 for a two day ticket.

Children 12 and under are free. 

SPAT provides free parking with convenient shuttle bus transportation directly to the ‘Fest.
