Your experience at the Shellfish Festival won’t be complete until you indulge in some of the world’s best shellfish! The Shellfish Pavilion has a variety of shellfish food offerings on the menu and options for those non-shellfish eaters too! Try a freshly shucked PEI oyster, PEI mussels, or enjoy the Island’s favourite lobster roll!
Feast & Frolic
(Thursday, September 16, 2021)
Fresh PEI lobster, oysters galore, Chef Ned Bell’s Famous Mussel Chowder, and premium Island Prime Beef – truly a feast of epic proportions and flavours! Feast & Frolic presented by the Lobster Fishers of PEI is the kickoff event for the PEI International Shellfish Festival and the perfect launch into your three-day shellfish adventure.
Before dinner, take a tour from one tip of the Island to the other by sampling oysters at the Tip to Tip Oyster Bar and enjoy a world Famous Mott’s Caesar. And don’t forget your dancing shoes, because the live east coast entertainment will be sure to have you on the dance floor.
This year, you will be able to enjoy contactless payment with the rechargeable Shellfish Bucks Card that can be loaded with Shellfish Bucks and used through tap at all vendors. The festival is a cashless event, so you can use Shellfish Bucks to purchase food, drinks and festival merchandise.
You can load your Shellfish Bucks Card online in September, or you can purchase Shellfish Bucks during the festival at one of the Shellfish Bucks Kiosks.
If you have Shellfish Tokens from past Shellfish Festivals, just bring them to the Token Trailer on site to get them loaded onto your Shellfish Bucks Card. Please note that Shellfish tokens will be accepted for exchange in 2021 only.
