Fireside Fourth for October – Oyster Festival in Oyster Bay, Long Island
Dubbed the largest waterfront festival on the East Coast, the Oyster Festival in Oyster Bay, New York, is a celebration of fresh oysters and mouthwatering seafood. The two-day annual affair was originally a homecoming salute to Theodore Roosevelt but has since morphed into a smorgasbord of delectable seafood dishes from culinary pros and expert chefs. There are also live musical performances, pirate shows, tall ships, carnival attractions and shucking contests.
Oyster Bay is a 1hr 20min train ride from Penn Station. Stay tuned for details.
