Besides having plenty of delectable oysters (raw, roasted, fried, smoked, steamed, in fritters or in stews), there are ample other food options including clams, crabs, shrimp, hamburgers, hot dogs, roast beef and more for visitors who have not discovered the wonders of the oyster. On Friday evening, festival-goers may enjoy a traditional Fireman's Parade and on Saturday, the Oyster Festival Parade features marching bands, community floats and more. Also popular with festival-goers, a variety of arts and crafts booths offer many handmade items in the Urbanna Oyster Festival Village. A wine tasting event features local wineries and boutique oyster samplings.
The dates for the 2013 Urbanna Oyster Festival are Friday, November 1st and Saturday, November 2nd. For additional information, visit the Urbanna Oyster Festival Website and for other fun pre-holiday things to do in the Southeast during November, visit November Festivals and Events.
