Third Annual Newport Oyster Festival

May 18 - May 20

$27 – $125

Taste your way around the Ocean State with 12 different oyster varieties at the 3rd Annual Newport Oyster Festival Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20 at historic Bowen’s Wharf in downtown Newport, RI. This rain-or-shine event brings together our local growers with craft cocktails & brews, six bands, a shucking contest and evening fundraiser in a family & dog-friendly event that coincides with the only US stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race.

The event showcases over 20 exhibitors and works closely with the Nature Conservancy in RI who collects all the shell – over two tons collected in 2017. Growers, food trucks, bustling bars, sweet & salty vendors and sampling opportunities are surrounded by the shops, water tours, galleries and restaurants that are resident tenants at this year-round destination.

The festival kicks off with a fundraiser Friday night under the main tents with all-you-can-eat oysters from seven different growers, open bar, live music and catering. Saturday and Sunday features cafe-style seating through the Wharf with live music.

Tickets for both events can be purchased through Bowen’s Wharf website at: http://www.bowenswharf.com/newport-oyster-festival.
