The fifteenth annual Wellfleet OysterFest will take place the weekend after Columbus Day, Saturday and Sunday, October 17 & 18, 2015, in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This two-day family festival celebrates the town's famous oysters, clams and shellfishing traditions bringing together locals and visitors alike for a weekend full of hometown flavor and big time fun! There is something for everyone: local cuisine, arts and crafts, educational programs, cooking demonstrations, children's activities, walking tours, live music, a road race, and the annual Oyster Shuck-Off competition.
The 'Fest is produced by SPAT, Wellfleet Shellfish Promotion and Tasting, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization devoted sustaining Wellfleet's shellfishing and aquaculture industries. The event is made possible through collaboration with the Town of Wellfleet, the support of many generous area businesses and shellfishermen, a dedicated group of volunteers and most importantly, the weekend's enthusiastic attendees.
Proceeds from the ‘Fest fund the organization’s educational mission which includes a local college scholarship program, community grant awards and initiatives to support Wellfleet’s shellfishing and aquaculture industries. To date, SPAT has given back more than $340,000 to the local community.
Support the shellfishing and aquaculture industries by offering a donation or getting involved.
