What’s the hottest shellfish trend? We think it could be “boutique brand oyster tasting.” Ever been to a wine tasting? The subtleties of the various terroirs really do influence the flavours of the wine, just as PEI’s numerous “merroirs” influence the wonderful salty fresh tastes of our local wild oysters! Now’s your chance to test the theory with the PEI International Shellfish Festival’s brand-new ticket option: Eat the Raw Bar Dry! Our RAW BAR event starts promptly at noon and lasts until 2 pm (or until the “bar runs dry”!) and tickets to this event must be purchased in advance. If you love oysters, then this is for you, as you can meet PEI’s top oyster harvesters and pick out your go-to oyster brands for enjoying the rest of the year! And if you’ve never tasted an oyster before, now is the time to go for it!
