About Oysterfest


What’s up this year at



OYSTERS! (Of course)

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 23,000 oysters last year!


FOOD! (The best in the city)

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! We also have a plating competition where 5 of the city’s top chefs race against time to make incredible and extravagant seafood platters which are then auctioned for charity.


DRINKS! (LOTS of drinks)

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


SHOPPING! (The coolest stuff)

Surveyors of food-related products will be on hand to showcase their offerings. And of course, don’t forget to get your Oysterfest memorabilia (t-shirts, hoodies and hats)!


COMPETITIONS! (Shucking and more)
