Oysters are one of those things that you either love or hate. In Charleston, oysters are quite popular! There are many festivals and events dedicated to the seafood delicacy- including the Lowcountry Oyster Festival.
The 2023 Lowcountry Oyster Festival is the perfect event for oyster lovers. This fun fest will feature more than 45,000 pounds of oysters. Yum! This is the world's largest oyster festival, so they don't skimp on the food. It has even been named one of the “top 20 events in the southeast” by Southeast Tourism Society.
Most food items at the festival range in cost from $2-$12. Buckets of steamed oysters (containing around 2 1/2 dozen oysters) will be offered at a tbd market price. You must purchase food & beverage tickets to purchase a bucket of oysters.
Not a fan of oysters? There's stuff for you to enjoy too! There will be a food court area, which will showcase many different local restaurants, giving everyone the chance to enjoy a tasty meal. No matter your tastes, you'll find something to love. Beyond food, this festival will include live music, contests, wine, beer, and a great Children's Area.
