Just found this terrific 30-second video from the Travel Channel about the Wellfleet OysterFest. If you haven't been and are curious...take a look. This year's festival is scheduled for October 19th and 20th. Mark your calendars and look for me there!
I grew up spending part of every summer in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, which included eating many oysters. After stumbling into an oyster shucking competition in Miami Beach in 2006, I’ve become a fan of the sport and have written about local, national, and international competitions for the Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, American Way Magazine, and the Huffington Post. I've also written oyster-centric stories for Rustik and Modern Farmer. I’ve never met an oyster I didn’t want to eat.
