Arcata Bay Oyster Festival


Arcata Bay Oyster Festival logo
Arcata, CA

Arcata Main Street's Oyster Festival has become a tradition for local restaurateurs, executive chefs, and caterers to show off their culinary skills by preparing oysters in every imaginable way. Try them roasted, barbecued, fried, on a pizza, in a secret sauce or just plain raw with a hint of garlic and lime! However your taste buds desire this oceanic delicacy, you are sure to find it on the Arcata Plaza.

More than 70% of the fresh oysters consumed in California are grown in 450 acres of Arcata Bay. June is a peak month for oyster harvests in Humboldt County. These oysters are now farmed using long-lines or "rack & bag" methods in the Arcata Bay and no harmful dredging of the bay is necessary for their capture.
