Whitstable Oyster Festival 2019

 

Hello there! Welcome, welcome and welcome again to your Whitstable Oyster Festival 2019! Back for more family fun-times, heritage inspired happenings and many memorable moments!

Join us as we herald the Landing of the Oysters and proudly parade them through the town; have a claw catch on at the Crabbing; cheer on the competitors in the famous Oyster Eating Competition; spend an afternoon on the pull at the Mud Tug; take in the sea views and explore a world of cuisine at the Tankerton Food Fair; as well as embrace the beautiful (and uniquely Whitstable) sight of a beach full of glowing Grotters at twilight… all this and so, so much more so invite the family over and get set for a packed weekend of Whitstable shaped fun!

The full Festival listings will be available on our website soon. You can find a map of the locations HERE, or for a bit more detail you can take a look at each separate event using the Featured Events links below, or the Community & Fringe event links from the navigation.

Keep a weather eye on this page and follow us on social media to stay up to date with announcements and info. 

If you’re lucky enough to look even remotely close to 25 or under, don’t forget to bring your ID! Whitstable Oyster Festival bars and associated alcohol trading outlets will be operating a #Challenge25 policy as part of our commitment to ensuring responsible drinking #WOF19

Roll up, roll up!

A mid-afternoon Whitstable pulling session with mud and sweat guaranteed, but hopefully no tears!
