      EVENT DETAILS
      The Great Baltimore Oyster Festival

      The Great Baltimore Oyster Festival returns to Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Saturday, October 14th from 1pm to 5pm at West Shore Park! The festival includes live music, oysters (raw, fried, and grilled), seafood dishes from local restaurants, beer wine, & specialty cocktails, and family-friendly activities. NEW this year is the Oyster Shucking Contest, pinning professional Oyster Shuckers against each other and the clock! Learn about oysters, their vital role to keeping our waters clean, how they grow, and where they come from. The event is FREE to attend but you need to purchase a ticket to eat oysters. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the event and include your choice of 6 Raw Oysters, 6 Fried Oysters, or 4 Grilled Oysters. Sorry, no refunds can be given on any tickets sold. The festival will benefit the Chesapeake Bay Foundation & Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor Initiative.     The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is a non-profit organization devoted to the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay in the United States. It was founded in 1967 and has had an educational program in Baltimore for 30 years. CBF is headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland. For more information on the foundation, visit www.cbf.org.       Waterfront Partnership’s Healthy Harbor Initiative works to restore and protect our City’s most valuable asset—the Baltimore Harbor. Millions of gallons of sewage, hundreds of tons of trash, and stormwater runoff are polluting the harbor and streams every year. These conditions are threatening the lives of the fish, crabs, turtles, birds, and river otters that are part of the harbor. Our mission is to bring people to the waterfront, create Harbor stewards and have a swimmable and fishable Inner Harbor.
