Montreal’s 6th Annual Oysterfest!

Oyster Lovers, this day is for you! Come join us Saturday September 6th AND Sunday September 7th for an event packed with all that makes Montreal so awesome!

Montreal’s Oysterfest is a culinary celebration centred around the most beautiful of bivalves: the oyster. With all proceeds going towards aquatic sustainability, Oysterfest attendees aren’t just having a fantastic day; they’re helping to protect the environment.

Now in its sixth year, Oysterfest has grown from humble beginnings to become an event Montrealers look forward to all summer long. The first Oysterfest, held in 2009, attracted 200 oyster enthusiasts and 7 restaurant partners. To the delight of the small but passionate organizing team, last year’s event welcomed more than 2000 guests and over 50 partnering restaurants and suppliers!

What’s up this year at Oysterfest?

OYSTERS! (Of course)

Oysters! As always, the season’s finest oysters will be handpicked by the Old Port Fishing Company and expertly opened by the hottest shuckers in the city. Fun fact: Oysterfest revellers savoured over 14,000 oysters last year!

FOOD! (The best in the city)

Food! Some of Montreal’s coolest and most acclaimed chefs and restaurants will be on hand, serving up dishes that define their ethos. This year, Oysterfest will welcome such gastronomic giants as Bevo, Flyjin, Garde Manger, Gaspar, Grinder, Imadake, L’Orignal, Kyo, Méchant Boeuf, Park, Suite 701, Taverne Monkland and many more!

DRINKS! (LOTS of drinks)

Drinks! As any Oysterfester knows, the beverages flow freely at Oysterfest. The friendly crews from Burgundy Lion and Philemon will be happy to pour you something to wash the oysters down with.

SHOPPING!! (The coolest stuff)

Shopping! Purveyors of food-related products will be on hand to showcase their offerings. Pick up cookbooks from Appetite for Books, gorgeous handcrafted wood products from Little Deer, and more!

COMPETITIONS! (Shucking and more)

A Canadian Qualifyer for the national shucking competion, mixology contest, the MOTTS Canadian Classic ceasar competions, AND THE WORLD OYSTER SHUCKING INVITATIONAL. NUFF SAID.
