2017 Urbanna Oyster Festival

November 3 @ 9:00 am - November 4 @ 6:00 pm

This November marks the 60th Anniversary of “The Official Oyster Festival of the Commonwealth!”

Over 75,000 visitors come to walk around one of the nation’s oldest seaports, sampling oysters, seafood and other tasty regional specialties, taking in music and waterfront exhibits and snapping up funky novelty items and fabulous finds like hand-knit sweaters at bargain prices and one-of-a-kind arts and crafts. Highlights include Friday night’s Firemen’s Parade, Saturday’s Virginia State Oyster Shucking Contest and the right-out-of-Norman-Rockwell Oyster Festival Parade.

This is a walking Pay-as-You-Go festival. There are no admission fees. Parking fees on Friday are $10.00 and Saturday are $20.00.
