Eat Oysters by the Dozen at the New Orleans Oyster Festival
Top seafood restaurants, like Drago’s and Acme Oyster House, set up shop in Woldenberg Park on the riverfront near the French Quarter for this annual June festival, returning in 2017 from June 3rd to 4th. You name it, they make. Newbies to this mollusk mashup will be hooked by the fried oyster po-boy offerings, while seasoned vets will be slurping them raw by the dozen. Come for the food, stay for the live music, cold local beers, and oyster eating contest. (Don’t be shell-shocked: Last year’s winner ate 44 dozen—that’s 528 oysters!)
