The 15th Annual San Francisco Oysterfest promises to be an afternoon of succulent oysters and stunning live performances.
Held at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park, this event is the largest oyster festival on the West Coast and features selections from farms located all over the Pacific region. You can also fill up on local and sustainably-farmed bites from some of San Francisco’s finest restaurants, as well as wine, spirits and cups of hearty Guinness.
In between bites you can check out an old-fashioned “shuck and suck” competition, oyster cooking demonstrations and even a live art exhibit. Musical performances from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Ra Ra Riot, Poolside and more provide the perfect soundtrack for lounging on the lawn with a dozen fresh oysters on the half shell (and a cold beer).
