The 8th Annual San Diego OysterFest returns to the picturesque Marina Embarcadero North by Seaport Village for two days this June 9 & 10, featuring a weekend of live musical performances, including sets from headliners Ghostland Observatory and Matisyahu, and an appearance by the original MasterChef himself - Gordon Ramsay. As usual, we are raffling a pair of backstage passes good for either Friday OR Saturday, so read on for all the details and be sure to enter!

OysterFest is filled with the three essentials for an epic time - booze, music, and food. This year, the festival offers two days of live band musical performances, as well as craft beer, wine and cocktails, plenty of fresh oysters and food offerings from a variety of eateries. This event spotlights some up and coming bands and entertainers in a festival atmosphere on the beautiful San Diego Bay.

Performing on Friday, June 9, starting at 2pm are The Verigolds, The Shelters, Dance Yourself Clean, Rocket From The Crypt, and headliner Ghostland Observatory. On Saturday, June 10, there will be live performances from Janelle Phillips, Josh Heinrichs, Vokab Kompany, Dam Funk, Magic!, and headliner Matisyahu. There will also be a live special guest appearance from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who will be filming for his bold, new variety show The F Word.

"What could be better than fresh succulent oysters, a cold beer and great live music in the most beautiful San Diego waterside setting?!" asked OysterFest producer Myles O'Reilly. "I can't think of anything."

Presented by SDO Productions, this year’s Oysterfest is sure to be an epic party, as always. Oysters from British Columbia, along with mollusks from the west coast down to Mexico will be available, as well as offerings from some of San Diego's favorite restaurants. Beer, wine, spirits and cocktails will also be served throughout the event. There will also be an oyster shuck & suck contest, a live art exhibit and more at this 21+ event. General admission tickets to San Diego Oysterfest are currently $30. Food and beverages are not included. All ticket options can be purchased online, so get ‘em while they last.
