Looking forward to the third year of this event, Holly Safford, one of the proprietors of the Winsor House Inn reflects, “As new owners of the Winsor House Inn, we were eager to revise the long standing tradition known as the Duxbury Oyster Festival. You’ll want to be under the tent with us in May to see the talented kids from the Duxbury Student Union, the local band The Waves, and the best oysters on the planet that come right from our bay! This festival is so important in our quest to not only to the local oyster farming community and the individual growers, but the students of Duxbury and the foundations that support them.”

This year’s Duxbury Oyster Festival will also include live music from The Waves and DSU’s own Coffee House Musicians. Tickets are $100.00 and attendance is limited to ensure the entire festival offers a premier experience with no lines and plenty of food.
