The 17th annual Wellfleet OysterFest will take place the weekend after Columbus Day, Saturday and Sunday, October 14 & 15, 2017, in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The event is produced by Wellfleet SPAT, Shellfish Promotion and Tasting, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization devoted to sustaining Wellfleet's shellfishing and aquaculture industries. Proceeds from the ‘Fest support the organization’s educational mission which include a local college scholarship program, community grant awards and initiatives to support shellfishing.
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! The event features food from local restaurants and shellfishermen, a fine art and crafts fair, great music, a Family Fun area, educational programs, cooking demonstrations and the famous Oyster Shucking Competition. The ‘Fest has become one of New England’s most popular fall festivals and attracted an nearly 20,000 visitors last year. The event is held in the center of town and is limited to approximately 75 art & crafts exhibitors. Approximately 50 additional booths are reserved for local and mission-related nonprofits, food vendors and raw bars.
