October 10, 2019 – BizBash—North America’s #1 resource for event industry trends, ideas, and inspiration—has named the PEI International Shellfish Festival to its 2019 list of Top 100 Events in Canada. These annual experiences have continued to break barriers, challenge the norm, and push limits to reach and engage audiences in a thoughtful way.
The Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival has continued to expand its schedule and broaden the experience for the 10,000 plus visitors who attend each year. Over Thursday to Sunday in late September, guests in 2019 could choose from a full-on PEI lobster and beef dinner, exciting moments cheering on North America’s top culinary competitors as they concocted fabulous shellfish dishes, a relaxing afternoon sampling PEI mussels, oysters and lobster or a lively evening dancing up a storm to traditional Maritime music.
“Events that are new to our list or that moved up from last year share one thing in common: They’re utterly unique,” said Beth Kormanik, BizBash editor in chief. “Whether they’re a music festival or a business conference, they offer have-to-be-there experiences that attendees know they can’t miss. The challenge for event organizers is to keep topping themselves year after year.”
“Twenty-four years ago, this festival was a germ of an idea and a one-day event on the Charlottetown waterfront,” says Festival Board Chair Liam Dolan. “I am certainly excited about our 25th anniversary – September 17-20, 2020 – when I expect the PEI International Shellfish Festival will be one of the greatest festivals celebrating shellfish anywhere in the world.”
