Oysterfest 2023

Thursday, November 2

7PM - 9PM


Reading Terminal Market presents Oysterfest, Thursday, November 2, 7PM – 9PM

This exclusive, highly anticipated, after-hours, annual event is returning by popular demand. Oysterfest first debuted in 2013, and has become one of Reading Terminal Market’s signature events, pairing a dozen different varieties of fresh, succulent, locally harvested oysters with a dozen locally sourced microbrews.

This walk-around event will showcase freshly shucked East Coast oysters with all the accoutrements, signature New England Clam Chowder prepared by Pearl’s Oyster Bar, mini–Fried Oyster Poboys prepared by Beck’s Cajun Cafe and the perfect craft beer pairings sourced by Molly Malloy’s. The net proceeds from this delicious celebration help to support the mission of the nonprofit Reading Terminal Market Corporation.

Tickets are $150 and can be purchased here
