Usually, the last weekend of September. From noon to dust.
Great entertainment and plenty of tasty oysters are featured each year at the Pemaquid Oyster Festival (end of September) from noon to dusk at Schooner Landing in beautiful Damariscotta. The festival host educational exhibits that highlight Maine’s working waterfront and the variety of recreational and commercial activities that revolve around it.
Of course, the big star of the Pemaquid Oyster Festival are the oysters. Last year year the Pemaquid Oyster Co. had over 15,000 oysters on stand by and a corps of volunteer oyster shuckers to maintain a constant flow of freshly shucked oysters to the crowd.
