13th Annual Fort Pierce Oyster Festival

  • 600 North Indian River Drive, Fort Pierce

The Fort Pierce Oyster Fest is a highly anticipated two-day celebration of the Fort Pierce waterfront that is set for April 20th and 21st, 2024. Hosted at Veterans Memorial Park & River Walk Center, this annual event offers a friendly and lively atmosphere filled with delectable oysters, local seafood dishes, and an array of landlubber foods.

One of the festival’s highlights is its dedication to Oyster Restoration Projects, with proceeds contributing to these conservation efforts, particularly focusing on the spoil islands near the Fort Pierce City Marina. Admission to the event is free, although voluntary contributions are welcomed.

Attendees can look forward to arts & craft vendors and food offerings including a full oyster menu that includes raw, steamed, fried oysters, oyster po’ boys, and more.

Live music performances are scheduled throughout the weekend. The festival organizers have arranged for free parking at the City Parking Garage and encourage attendees to bring canned goods for donation to the Treasure Coast Food Bank. For those seeking accommodations, there are plenty of hotels nearby, including the Best Western Port St. Lucie that is offering a special rate of $99/night for Oyster Fest attendees.
