One of the biggest events on Kent’s calendar, the annual oyster festival in trendy Whitstable is far more than a foodie’s fiesta.
Head to bohemian Whistable in July for a weeklong celebration of the area’s famous oyster trade - with food, music and revellery aplenty!
Every year the beautiful seaside town hosts a series of colourful events, mixing traditional coastal celebrations such as the historic Landing of the Oysters, with modern festivities including a huge parade, the bustling Harbour Food Fair with dishes and drinks from around the globe, live music and comedy from top performers - and, of course, the spectacular fireworks finale on Whitstable beach.
Whitstable is one of England’s most beautiful coastal towns, brimming with artitsts, boutiques, excellent dining, delicious local ales and gorgeous scenic walks. Stay in a boutique hotel, rent a fisherman’s hut for your break, or simply camp on Whistable Hill and soak up those sea views.
A unqiue experience and a boho paradise - this is a beach festival that's not to be missed!
