If you ever thought about going to an oyster festival, this is where you want to be! I love festivals and the Low Country Oyster Festival has become my new must attend event. It’s named one the largest Oyster Festival in the World.  This was my first year attending. I had such an amazing time. I can’t wait till next year. I actually won the tickets through a giveaway on Instagram. The tickets were VIP and included unlimited drinks and oysters plus a brunch buffet. 

The festival is every year at Boone Hall Plantation located in Mt Pleasant, SC. I made sure to head to the festival early The weather was bright and sunny for the first couple of hours. It was perfect oyster shucking weather! We love our seafood here in the south. I think that’s what I love the most about living in Charleston. If you’re a seafood lover, this is where it’s at. Coastal loving me and fresh seafood and we love it here. Now back to the festival.

They had everything you would need in the VIP area. They supplied the oyster knives, hot sauce, cocktail sauce and the buckets of oysters. We had local clusters and Virginia select singles. There is no need to pick which one, I didn’t I had a bucket or two of both lol. It’s okay to love them both! I promise if you don’t get VIP tickets you’re still guaranteed a great time. There are lots of food and bev vendors. I had the best oyster shooter ever out there and I’m currently stalking their Instagram so I can find them again when they pop up. 

So keep the “Lowcountry Oyster Festival” on your radar for next year. If you’re a oyster lover like I am you won’t be disappointed.
