It's that time again, seafood-loving Brisbanites, with the Sandstone Point Hotel bringing back its annual Oyster and Seafood Festival in 2021. 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 16, 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. While the details are still being finalised, you can expect freshly shucked oysters on hand at the fest's 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 usually on offer.
Anyone that really, truly loves their oysters can cross their fingers that the competitive portion of the day makes a return, because it wouldn't be a food festival without a contest. Chef demonstrations and live music are typically on the bill as well, all as part of a cruisy day hanging out by the water.
