The Festival marks the beginning of the new Oyster season, respecting the tradition of generations of expertise in harvesting oysters from the surrounding shallow seas. Protected in the bay from the Atlantic, the oysters in Clarenbridge flourish in the perfect mixture of fresh and seawater. Perfect conditions combined with a wealth of skill and knowledge from the community, mean that the taste of the Clarenbridge Oyster is unrivalled. Dress up and dance the night away, but most of all savour the famous Clarenbridge Oyster at this year’s Festival.
