Tofino Oyster Festival 2022

Join us at the Shore Pier for a weekend full of Food, Live Music, Bubbles and Oysters!

Friday November 25: This year’s Tofino Oyster Fest kick-off event is the Mermaid’s Ball, an elegant and electric Under-The-Sea theme costume party. Enjoy both raw and cooked oysters from the best shuckers in the industry, while our local bartenders pour up bubbles, beer, wine, and whiskey. Meet on the dance floor for swing-blues band Blue Moon Marquee as they bring their signature high energy, honey-dipped sound, followed by late-night live DJs. Be sure to make a splash with your attire — prizes awarded for best costume! Doors open at 8 pm. Drink tickets available for purchase on-site.

Saturday November 26: This “spe-shell” weekend continues with a Champagne Gala, hosted at the stunning Shore Pier in the heart of downtown Tofino. Sample a wide range of fresh oysters from Tofino’s world-famous chefs and cast your vote for Tofino’s Best Oyster. And that’s just a little drop in the bucket — this indulgent celebration is complete with live music from the Blue Moon Marquee Band, welcome bubbly upon arrival, and several drool-worthy door prizes from our event sponsors. Doors open at 7 pm.

Sunday November 27: The Shuckers Showdown! Champion Shuckers from around the world gather at the Shore Pier to go tete-a-tete for the title of top Tofino Shucker. A wrap up DJ party and oyster shucking contest for both professional champs and amateur shuckers, and cash prizes. This brawl of the bivalves closes out the Festival, and the Sunday Funday event you won’t want to miss! Doors 2 – 6 pm. All ages welcome.
