As a native South Carolinian, I feel it's my duty to remind everyone that there are TWO Carolinas, North Carolina and South Carolina, and that neither one should be referred to as simply "Carolina" :)


I'm sorry I missed that. I had no idea. Are there any other good oyster festivals anywhere around here?


St. Mary's County in Southern Maryland used to have an Oyster Festival every October, don't know if they still do. I used to live down there until 1994 and the Oyster Festival was something fun to do.


Yup, St. Mary's County still has it -- http://www.usoysterfest.com/

Good food, and lots of fun. Hate to tell everyone about it, but it rocks.

I grew up a about 15 min. outside of Urbanna. The Oyster Festival is a long standing tradition for local "Northern Neckers". Most of us go by boat, and spend the entire day eating and drinking and enjoying every bit of the festival.


Mmm, oysters and [north] Carolina Q - these are a few of my favorite things. The Urbanna Oyster Festival is simply phenomenal. With so many food bloggers in this town, I'm glad ONE of you was smart enough to recognize the gem that lies to our south. Thank you!
