18th Annual South Carolina Oyster Festival

Park your camp chairs under a magnolia tree, and the South Carolina Oyster Festival will take care of the brews, bands, and bivalves! Multiple oyster vendors will shuck up pounds and pounds of fresh steamed and fried oysters on the grounds of Historic Columbia's largest mansions. It's one of Columbia's most popular festivals, with plenty of room to stretch out on the grassy lawns. This family-friendly event features children's activities, live music, lots of food vendors, beer, and wine. Other activities include arts and crafts, vendors, inflatable amusement rides, and tours of the historic Robert Mills House from 12-4pm ($2 for 12+ not included in this Dealsaver, 12 and under free). Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and strollers, as well as oyster gloves and shuckers (oyster gloves and shuckers can also be purchased at the festival).

Make sure to get tickets in advance for half the price at Pearlz Oyster Bar Columbia, the Robert Mills House Gift Shop, or here:­

    For all that would like to meet up at a particular place to meet each other here goes, They will be closing the Blanding Street in front of the Roberts Mills house and the Hampton-Preston Mansion. You can find parking on Pickens Street and Hampton street. The ticket booth will be set up at one end of the event however they did not know at this time which end or maybe even both ends. Once you enter the area with the venders, just come to the Hampton-Preston Mansion & Gardens which is directly in front of the Robert Mills house and enter gate and turn right. I will have a table set up under the oak trees. You can sign up there just to meet and let all know your in attendance. I am throwing my cell number out just in case you need to call me. [masked]-5885. Thank you all and looking forward to meeting you.
