This year’s oyster fest will be hosted at the stunning Shore Pier in the heart of downtown Tofino. Sip on your bubbles while you take a glance at the magnificent mountaintops of Meares Island, catch a glimpse of a seal swimming nearby, and gaze upon the starry sky above. Nothing quite compares to the natural beauty that surrounds the tall timber frame and 180-degree glass window views of the Shore Pier.
The Tofino Oyster Festival is the reincarnation of the extremely popular Clayoquot Oyster Festival that began in 1997 and ran for over 20 years. A favourite with locals and visitors alike, the festival celebrates the abundance and beauty of the sea in and around Tofino. Milestone events like these always bring a vibrant energy to what might otherwise be a gloomy November weekend.
