THE FALMOUTH OYSTER FESTIVAL
10 September 2012
With the summer approaching its end, it’s time to start looking ahead to some of the great events coming up in the autumn. One such event is the delicious Falmouth Oyster Festival, which is set to take place from October 11th – 14th.
The Oyster Festival celebrates the beginning of the traditional oyster dredging season in Falmouth and the quality of the region’s seafood in general. The four day event kicks off with a cookery master-class from a celebrity chef, before settling down to a schedule of oyster shucking competitions, cookery classes, live music and a town parade.
Visitors staying in luxury cottages in Cornwall will also be able to taste a wide range of Cornish food and drink on sale in the festival marquee while perusing a range of great craft stalls. The festival and its fun atmosphere are bound to make for a fantastic day out for all the family.
