Oyster Shucking Competition

Cheer on your favourite shuckers and get your fill of oysters at this year’s festival with Rodney’s Oyster House. On Sunday June 30, 10-12 participants will compete for shucking supremacy. The top six shuckers will move on to participate in a team relay competition on Canada Day that will see the pros and a participant from Bluenose II and Picton Castle go head to head.

Before the relay, two members of the audience will be invited to participate in a Shuck N’ Slurp competition. Whoever slurps down the most oysters before the clock runs out wins!

Shucked oysters will be served to the public following the shows, so bring your appetite!

Live Entertainment

You’ll be tapping your feet and singing along all weekend with traditional fiddling and step dancing, upbeat folk-based music, sea shanties and a hula hooping mermaid.
