2019 Urbanna Oyster Festival
November 1 @ 8:00 am - November 2 @ 5:00 pm
Friends of the Rappahannock is proud to once again be participating in the Urbanna Oyster Festival! Come learn about all things oysters and see our restoration first hand at the waterfront exhibits! This is the 62nd year of this incredible event! We will be leading a watershed education station for the oyster festival education day, and have staff at the waterfront for both days of the festival.
The Town of Urbanna is a true Oyster town and the best place to taste, buy and try all things oyster related. Start your day at the Scottish Factor Store and check out the history of the oyster industry in Urbanna. After your get a peek at how we’ve done it for decades, take a right out of the driveway to the museum and head down “Community Row” to the Waterfront exhibits where you can see the industry in practice today. Once you get a little hands-on experience head back up to the vendors and try all of the different ways to eat these bivalve delicacies! Don’t forget to try the wine and oyster pairings! Also, Virginia Craft Beer Tasting in the park. Virginia is for Oyster Lovers after all!
