The 13th Annual
San Francisco Oyster Festival

This event is the largest Oyster festival on the West Coast drawing over 250,000 people to date. Over half a million succulent oysters have willingly sacrificed themselves over the years.

There will be oysters from a wide variety of oyster farms throughout the Pacific Coast as well as food of all kinds from some of San Francisco's finest restaurants. All food vendors at the event place a huge emphasis on providing healthy, local, sustainably farmed product.

Starting the festival this year will be the winner of SF Station's local music showcase, The Lineup, produced in partnership with Oysterfest. The unique combination of oysters and stout is supported by a great cast of contemporary live music.

Though oysters are the main theme of the festival many alternative choices of cuisine will be offered. A wide variety of beverages will also be available, ranging from beer, wine and premium spirits.
*Happy Hour: All alcoholic beverages will be $1 off until 2pm.

Please help us support San Francisco with it's goal of achieving zero waste. All food and beverage containers will be compostable, please place in in the correct receptacles. Bottled water will not be sold at the event in an attempt to reduce plastic pollution, but FREE drinking water will be available throughout the event.

There will be a number of very interesting sideshows including the Shuck and Suck Competition, Oyster History Exhibition and Oyster Cooking Demonstrations. A play area will also be set aside for children.
