Ceduna VIC 5690

The 2017 Ceduna Oysterfest is set to be another spectacular showcase of Far West Coast hospitality, with a varied entertainment program, activities, competitions and more.

This year our focus will be on expanding the variety of the freshest and best in local seafood to complement the signature Far West Coast Oysters, sourced from selected growers in Smoky and Denial Bays.

Friday 29th September

The Ceduna Business and Tourism Association will once more host their free Seafood Tasting in the CBD from 11.30, with a guest Chef Simon Bryant, alongside demonstrations of oyster opening and fish filleting.

The SA Sail Training Vessel the One and All will again be returning to Ceduna for the Oysterfest, and they will have a program of open ship visits and short sails available for interested visitors.

For those seeking a music experience, plans are underway for a live music event to be held off site.

Saturday 30th September

Chris Sperou will once more take to the skies to let everyone know the Oysterfest has well and truly begun. The Oysterfest Street Parade will lead everyone down from the CBD to the Oysterfest site on the shores of Murat Bay, where the official opening will take place. From there a series of community arts workshops, live music, kids activities, carnival amusements and competitions will be happening around the site, extending from the Ceduna Sailing Club to the Day Tce Carpark. Test your skills in the Fish Filleting competition, or learn how to play the drums with the Damushi Ensemble. Tasting Australia’s Creative Director Simon Bryant will host a series of cooking demonstrations across the weekend.

After the AFL Grand Final concludes a variety of musical entertainment will take us into the evening headlined by Ghana’s the Damushi Ensemble and the Tamworth Country Music Festival regular Amber Joy Poulton. Local emerging artists will join Amber onstage for a Talent Showcase, with more live music following through to 11pm.

Sunday 1st ctober

Sunday morning will see the return of the revered Pancake Breakfast alongside the traditional combined Church Service in the McEvoy Marquee.

Popular events such as the Kids Iced Coffee Hold and Treasure Hunts will be happening alongside the coveted Stein Holding competition before the signature competition of Oysterfest - the Oyster Shuck and Eat. Before they get underway they’ll have a demonstration from some of the fastest professional shuckers to show us how it’s done.

The Damushi Ensemble and then Amber Joy Poulton return to the stage with her band for a family concert. Once again the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel Fireworks Spectacular will light the skies over Murat Bay, but it doesn’t end there. They will be kicking on with live music performances throughout the evening and the Food and Wine Precinct will keep your hunger at bay until close at 11pm.
