Florida’s Halifax Oyster Fest is a Tasty Good Time

The 8th Annual Halifax Oyster and Music Fest is coming April 29. If you happen to be at Sea Shells Beach Club, this event is just 10 minutes from the resort at City Island on the Halifax River.

This “party with a purpose” is a joyful celebration of the Daytona Beach community and also an educational forum to restore the local oyster population and raise awareness about the important role they play in the ecosystem.

You can find the party on City Island behind the Daytona Beach Library from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Enjoy live music, beer, local restaurants and food trucks, and, of course, an insane amount of oysters.

This year, The Marine Discovery Center’s Conservation Carnival for kids is back. The Conservation Carnival provides fun and games that will also educate attendees about the importance of our waterways and environment and what they do to help restore healthy oyster beds to Volusia County’s Intracoastal Waterway.

Here’s who you’ll see performing this year:



The Love Band

Steve Kampa & The Pickups

Admission is $7 at the door, and kids under 10 get in free. Get ready to shuck and suck (down some oysters) at the Halifax Oyster and Music Festival.

COMMENT: Are you an oyster-eating champ, or do you prefer other forms of shellfish? Tell us where you like to eat it in Daytona.
