St. MARY'S COUNTY OYSTER FESTIVAL

It’s that time of year once again. When, for oyster lovers, the St. Mary’s Countyfairgrounds near Leonardtown transform to nirvana. Oysters served up raw,
scalded, grilled on the barbie, on bread, on the half shell, stewed, nude, cooked in savory sauces, in salads, even in desserts, just about every way imaginable and then some. They’re here for the eating and enjoying at the 50th Annual St. Mary’s County Oyster Festival. This year's festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 15th and 16th, 2016 at the Fairgrounds on Route 5 just south of Leonardtown.


The gates are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults, no charge for children 12 and under and there is plenty of free parking. The festival events continue, rain or shine, since adequate buildings and tents are provided on the grounds. Proceeds from the Oyster Festival go to local charities.

For more information on the festival and a full schedule of events contact the Oyster Festival office at 301-863-5015, or write to P.O. Box 766, California, MD 20619.
