Arcata Main Street’s 25th Anniversary

Arcata Bay Oyster Festival

Saturday, June 20, 2015
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Fun, Food and Frolic in Humboldt County

on the Historic Arcata Plaza, California

Arcata Bay’s Oyster Festival is the prized pearl of summer festivals, where food lovers will have the opportunity to tantalize their taste buds with fabulous oysters and food. Attendees will drink our local beer and wine, and dance the day away to local music. Many other activities entertain the festival goers, like the quirky Oyster Calling, and Shuck-n-Swallow contests. Local chefs compete for the best raw and cooked oyster.

Oyster Fest is about celebrating the North Coast culture where our merchants, restauranteurs, volunteers and guests embrace locally grown and made foods, drinks, and art. We we want you to be steeped in a complete Humboldt County experience.
