Oyster Festival, Tofino, British Columbia, CanadaThe Oyster Fest in Tofino, British Columbia, Canada, is scheduled for November 25, 26, and 27, 2022.

This year’s fest will be hosted by Shore Pier in the heart of downtown Tofino.

Please note that November 25 and 26 are for those 19 and older (and two pieces of identification are requires). November 27 is open to all — it’s family-friendly, and children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets are available online.

Oyster Fest’s Trio of Events

The weekend festival is made up of three unique and interactive events, including the Mermaid’s Ball from 8 p.m. to midnight November 25, and the Oyster Festival Gala at 7 p.m. November 26. The Shucker’s Showdown takes place from 2 to 6 p.m. November 27.

The Mermaid’s Ball is an elegant yet vibrant costume party that features live shucking from renowned chefs, live music courtesy of Vancouver Island artists, and a curated menu of handcrafted cocktails and “coveted spirits”.

The weekend continues at the Oyster Festival Gala, a more intimate evening focused on education through enjoyment. Guests are seated and served a wide range of fresh oysters from Tofino’s chefs before voting on which should be crowned this year’s “Best Tofino Oyster.”

Champion and amateur shuckers from around the world go tête-a-tête for the title of top Tofino Shucker at the Shucker Showdown on the final day of the Oyster Fest.

The Tofino Oyster Festival is the reincarnation of the Clayoquot Oyster Festival that began in 1997 and ran for more than 20 years. Tofino is a small district on Vancouver Island, off Canada’s west coast. It sprawls on a peninsula within Clayoquot Sound.
