18th Clayoquot Oyster Festival
Wednesday 12th to Sunday 16th November, 2014
Originally conceived to create awareness about oyster harvesting in Clayoquot Sound, this festival has burst out of its shell, so to speak, with a week-end of deliciously engaging events.
This is the week-end to come out of your shell in Tofino. Savour different varieties of Vancouver Island oysters, sip on BC wine, dance to live music and even hop on a boat for a visit to an oyster farm in Clayoquot Sound. Tofino's spirit and excellent humour shine brightly in stormy November for The Clayoquot Oyster Festival.
Fun fact: Clayoquot Sound is a great cultivator and consumer of this special bivalve, annually growing over 50,000 gallons of oysters a year and over the festival weekend slurping back approximately 8,000-9,000(!)
