Falmouth Oyster Festival Food and More…
Falmouth Oyster Festival announces the start of the oyster dredging season. The Falmouth Oyster dredging fleet is one of the last remaining traditional oyster fisheries. Dredging is only allowed by sail or by hand and rowing. No mechanical power is permitted.
The Festival itself is full of cookery demonstrations by leading local chefs, oysters, seafood, wine and local ale, children’s shell painting, sea shanties, a town parade, a Falmouth Working Boat race and marquees brimming with Cornish produce.
The festival is a celebration of traditional sailing and fishing, Cornish food and the traditions and heritage of Maritime Cornwall.
