the letter 'W'When the District of Tofino dedicated November 'Oyster Month', it was a sure sign that the Clayoquot Festival of Oysters and the Sea was a huge success with many more years of celebrating to come.

This year we celebrate the 14th Annual Clayoquot Festival of Oysters and the Sea!! What was once a humble locals event for one night; something do to on a rainy night in our once sleepy November town, has now evolved into a weekend of oyster gastronomy, including oyster farm tours, educational seminars, masquerade ball and of course, the main event, selling out in just four hours after tickets went on sale this year, the Oyster Gala.

There are plenty of other events to go to November 15th - 17th. If you are dining out around town this month, ask about special oyster features. Otherwise, slurp into the mood and find your own way to celebrate 'Oysterember'!

Events confirmed for 2010 (more to come...)
Other events are starting on November 18, 2010
