We were thrilled to be the event coordinator for the first ever Ocean State Oyster Festival in Providence, RI on September 19, 2015. As a way to celebrate the oyster and its extensive history with Rhode Island aquaculture, we invited 18 local oyster farmers to show off their best, and they did! They shucked over 10,000 oysters and fed over 1000 oyster fans! It was quite a day.
