Oyster Festival

This free, two-day, outdoor event is usually held primarily in the parking lot adjacent to the Jax Brewery, with a few related events held elsewhere in the nearby French Quarter. It features live music, contests and competitions, and tasting events starring the festival's namesake, the Louisiana Oyster. Among the contests is usually an oyster shucking and oyster eating competition sponsored by some of the city's leading seafood restaurants.

One of the festival highlights features half a dozen Gulf oysters paired with white wines in an effort to determine the best pairing. The "Oyster and Wine Tasting and Competition," as it is typically called, features celebrity judges which include some of New Orleans' most notable food and wine journalists.
