Whitstable Oyster Festival

About the Festival

We are really proud to be part of such a long running cultural institution in our seaside town and are looking forward to welcoming friends old and new.

Here at WOF HQ, we feel that oyster festival is so much more than that – it isn't just a festival, it's the ultimate staycation for visitors from near and far, old and young. It's holidaying the way our grandparents used to.

We have two new exciting additions to the festival this year – The Shuck, our very own showcase restaurant, bar and performance venue - and The Oyster Bed, a family campsite overlooking the bay. The Shuck and camping tickets are on sale and are going fast, so don't let yourself be disappointed.

Whitstable is beautiful and there are events across the town throughout the festival week, with many of them free. There are lively restaurants, bars, a swimming pool and bowling alley and of course our stunning stretch of beaches. Take the opportunity to fly a kite, watch the fireworks from the Old Neptune or build a grotter – there is something for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you here this summer !
