Clayoquot Oyster Festival – November 19-21, 2010
The Clayoquot Oyster Festival is a celebration of the abundance and beauty of the sea. As a region we harvest 50,000 gallons of Pacific Oysters (Crassiostrea Gigas) annually thus giving us much cause to rejoice in the bounty we are blessed with in our own backyard. It is for this reason that on the weekend of November 18-20, 2010 the community of Tofino in beautiful Clayoquot Sound will go to great lengths to honour the humble oyster.
The 14th annual Clayoquot Oyster Festival will celebrate those gems of the sea with oyster farm tours, oyster and wine tastings, educational seminars, the Mermaid’s Ball on Friday November 19th, and of course the ever popular and decadent Oyster Gala on Saturday November 20th. Costumes, slurping contests, abundant oyster eating and lots of great music are what make this festival so special for those that live here and the welcomed visitors who join us for these celebratory days in Clayoquot Sound.
This weekend is really Tofino at its best.
