Oysterfest, The Annual Oyster Feast At Kingfisher, Is Back October 24

If there is one Fall tradition that never gets old, it’s oyster season.

Kingfisher is hosting their 7th annual Oysterfest, a feast celebrating all things oysters, from raw to baked to fried and stewed.

On Saturday, October 24 from 10am to 2pm, drop in at Kingfisher and you’ll find a team of shuckers in the front parking lot, serving up over a dozen different varieties of these delicacies from all over the country.

“Half the fun is interacting with the local culinary community,” said Jim Murphy. “We get a lot of students and their Chef/Instructors from local programs that volunteer to shuck, it introduces the students to a new skill and promotes camaraderie within the industry. Besides it is always good to meet young cooks.”
