World Oyster Opening Championship

The day begins with a lively ‘parade of competitors’ which weaves its way through the narrow medieval streets of the city down to the Festival Marquee on Nimmo’s Pier.  There will be plenty of noise, colour and excitement for all to enjoy.

The highly competitive World Oyster Opening Championships is the highlight of the day. Oyster openers from all over the world will be vying for title. Estonia’s Anti Lipek is the current holder of the title. There will be plenty of live music throughout the day .

Tickets include 1 drink token (wine or beer), a half dozen oysters and two dishes from the restaurant in the festival marquee.
