2013 Wellfleet Oysterfest - October 19th and 20th
This year will be the 13th annual Wellfleet OysterFest. The weekend (and the village) will be filled with fun things for the whole family to do and see. There is a 5K run, a tennis tournament, arts & crafts, concerts, an old-fashioned spelling bee, a guided walk across Uncle Tim's Bridge, and the all-important oyster shucking contest. Go to http://www.wellfleetoysterfest.org/ for more information, a schedule of events and for instructions on how to shuck an oyster.
This may be the last year that the festival will be held in the village. It has become 'too successful' and, some think, the crowds pose a danger to public safety. This year they have imposed $5 (1-day), or $8 (2-days) entry fees to cover the costs of additional safety precautions.
