Whitstable Oyster Festival 2018


Hello there! Welcome, welcome and welcome again to your Whitstable Oyster Festival 2018! 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 are available HERE, with a map of the locations HERE, or for a bit more detail you can take a look at each sepaerate event using the Featured Events links below, or the Community & Fringe event links from the navigation.
