Welcome to Celebrate OysterFest 2020!
At this time, on any other year, our Skookum Rotary Club members would be volunteering their time at the Port of Shelton helping to setup the town of OysterFest that would have a three day population of 12,000 to 15,000 people. The town would be built piece by piece, from the ground up, on an unused airstrip.
This year is different. For the first time since 1982, our club had to cancel our live event during the first full weekend of October. We know everyone from far and wide looks forward to OysterFest and regret that we cannot hold it due to COVID 19 issues.
However, our club members have decided to keep the spirit of OysterFest alive by providing Celebrate OysterFest 2020, happening on this new website.
Our Celebration event is dedicated to our hard working Skookum Rotary members, local sister Rotary clubs and our not-for-profit Mason County OysterFest partners who provide wonderful food, exhibits and help at our event.
Enjoy the spirit of OysterFest by looking at our website pages including past items of interest such as: the event; history; pictures; videos; testimonials; memories; and favorite recipes. Help celebrate our West Coast Oyster Shucking Championship and Washington State Seafood Festival (aka OysterFest). You may wish to also revisit the site occasionally as some pages such as your favorite recipes will change on a periodic basis.
As a last note, OysterFest is a fund raiser for Skookum Rotary Club and many local service organizations. Our Rotary Club, and our not-for-profit partners, are having a very difficult year raising money for most important service projects. Please consider making a donation to help sustain our Rotary humanitarian service projects by clicking Donate Now and/or by linking to our partner not-for-profit sites which can also be found on this website by Clicking Here.
Enjoy The OysterFest Spirit,
OysterFest 2020 GOO (Grand Old Oyster)
