Oyster Festival 2022

13th - 16th October 2022

Whilst the summer season may be coming to an end, there’s still plenty to look forward to here in Falmouth with autumnal breaks and plenty of events and activities to enjoy – including one of our favourites, the fantastic Falmouth Oyster Festival which will be celebrating its 24th year.

Running between 13th - 16th October, the festival welcomes thousands of visitors each year, celebrating the start of the oyster dredging season with a packed programme of events that offers fun for all ages.

This year’s Falmouth Oyster Festival line-up includes cookery demonstrations by local leading chefs, as well as sea shanties, oyster shucking competitions, a town parade, Falmouth Working Boat Race, shell painting for kids and a marquee full to the brim with local produce.

You’ll likely recognise some of the high profile names taking part too, with Rick Stein, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Nathan Outlaw and many more taking part.

Taking place in Event’s Square, Falmouth, those staying with us here at The Royal Duchy will only be a short walk away from all the fun, making it easy to enjoy all that this fun festival has to offer then returning to relax in luxury overlooking the bay.

Food lovers, this one is for you. Integrate Falmouth Oyster Festival into a Cornwall holiday and stay with us, where our luxury accommodation awaits.
