PEI International Shellfish Festival @ Event Grounds

September 19-22, 2019

PEI International Shellfish Festival 
The Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival returns to downtown Charlottetown September 19-22, 2019. Chefs and shuckers from around the world come together to show off their skills, and shellfish lovers cheer them on while feasting on renowned PEI cultured mussels, PEI oysters and lobster. The event is hosted by the PEI Shellfish Association and the PEI Aquaculture Alliance and the members are proud to show off the Island’s world-famous PEI shellfish.

Join Canada’s favourites, Chefs Lynn Crawford and Michael Smith, for a jam-packed schedule of exciting culinary competitions and demos by day, and roof-raising kitchen parties by night.  In its 24th year the PEI International Shellfish Festival is a signature event in the month-long PEI Fall Flavours Festival. Competition is fierce for the awards for top oyster shucking, PEI potato seafood chowder, mussel tying and Caesar concocting! Learn More
