The 33rd annual Oyster Festival offers the perfect opportunity to start holiday shopping early. More than 140 vendors—all showcasing handmade wares—will be housed within three huge tents along the beautiful bay. Booth fees from these vendors help support a myriad of charitable efforts by the Oyster Bay Rotary.
“These coveted spots are nearly sold out each year by the third week of January, with the jewelry spots filling up first,” said Mel Warren, the arts and crafts coordinator since 1996, who began his relationship with the Oyster Festival in the early 1980s as a vendor himself, selling handmade leather crafts.
Location: Theodore Roosevelt Park, at the Waterfront
Please be sure to visit “Downtown USA” along Audrey Ave. This is a great opportunity to stop by and meet many of the local nonprofits and store owners that help make Oyster Bay/East Norwich so unique.
