Norwalk’s 40th Annual Oyster Festival

Norwalk’s 40th Annual Oyster Festival

While most people see Labor Day as the unofficial end of summer, in Norwalk the celebration always begins the weekend after Labor Day at the annual Oyster Festival. The 40th annual Norwalk Oyster Festival returns Friday, September 8th through Sunday the 10th at the Norwalk Veteran’s Memorial Park on Norwalk Harbor near Long Island Sound.

Headlining the entertainment lineup this year will be Mike DelGuidice and Big Shot. Current Billy Joel band members, Mike DelGuidice, Tommy Bynres and Chuck Burgi will be performing Billy Joel music. This is the only show endorsed by Billy Joel, performed by his members and handpicked by Billy Joel himself.

Besides the live entertainment, arts and crafts, kid’s rides, craft beer tents and an international food court will be available. For more information on times and ticket prices, click here.

Norwalk’s Oyster Festival was started in September 1978 by a small group of individuals who later formed the Seaport Association. Their goal was to create an event that symbolized the spirit of the revitalization of South Norwalk. The initial festival drew 10,000 people from throughout the Northeast. The annual event now draws an average of 90,000 people annually, according to the Seaport Association’s website.

The event is intended to raise money to restore the Sheffield Island Lighthouse, a historical and educational venue which strives to increase awareness for our environment and hosts events all throughout the year.
