Because The Shuck Must Go On!
Wellfleet, MA … September 4, 2020) The Wellfleet OysterFest, the region’s premier fall festival, has been reinvented in 2020 as a virtual celebration to mark the event’s 20th anniversary. Organized by local non-profit, Wellfleet Shellfish Promotion and Tasting (S.P.A.T.), this milestone edition of ‘Fest will feature celebrity chefs and top-notch music talent in a one-of-a-kind virtual jubilee, while holding on to the same community spirit that makes the ‘Fest so special. The party will culminate with the 20th annual Wellfleet OysterFest All Star Shuck Off, a reimagining of the event’s famous oyster shucking contest, showcasing ten legendary shuckers from the past 19 years who will go head to head for the ultimate crown. This year’s mantra: The Shuck Must Go On!
The event will be streamed on the internet at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday October 17th – the traditional weekend for the Wellfleet OysterFest – from the beautiful Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (W.H.A.T.)
