The Oyster and Seafood Festival
Slurp your Saturday away on Bribie Island.
August 19, 2020
It's that time again, seafood-loving Brisbanites, with the Sandstone Point Hotel hosting its annual Oyster and Seafood Festival. If you're a fan of slurping down molluscs or munching on other morsels from the ocean, prepare to be in your element.
Taking over the venue on Saturday, October 17, the day-long celebration of salty, slimy deliciousness will treat your tastebuds to oysters from all around the country, asking whether you can discern the difference. They'll be freshly shucked at the fest's oyster bars — and if you need something to snack on in-between, you can feast on the rest of the sea's finest bounty (and sip a few beverages) at an array of seafood and wine stalls. Mussels, calamari, prawns, fish: they'll all be on offer.
Anyone that really, truly loves their oysters can also take part in the competitive portion of the day, because it wouldn't be a food festival without a contest. Chef demonstrations and live music are on the bill as well, alongside a cruisy day hanging out, with entry costing $7.65.
