Falmouth Oyster Festival

Falmouth’s Events Square will again play host to one of Cornwall’s biggest and best loved specialist food festivals, Falmouth Oyster Festival, now in its 21st year.

The annual festivities celebrate the start of the oyster dredging season, the native Fal Oyster and the diversity of Cornish seafood, with four days of feasting, cooking demos, live music and craft stalls.

Daily cookery demonstrations are held during the festival by top chefs and food experts from Cornwall’s hotels and restaurants, inspiring visitors to try their hand at unusual and exciting seafood combinations and indulge in the tastes of native oysters, wines, ales and local produce.

The programme includes live music, Cornish food produce, arts & crafts marquee, real ale and wine bars, oyster and seafood bars, Working Boat race, Grand Oyster Parade and shucking competition.
