Tyne Valley Oyster Festival

Since 1973, Tyne Valley has been the home of the Canadian Oyster Shucking Championship. Oyster shuckers from across the country converge in Western PEI to put their skills to the test on the main stage. It turns out, the musicians aren’t the only rock stars at the festival! 

And, of course, the biggest star of the festival remains the PEI oyster. Festival-goers can look forward to enjoying all-you-can-eat oysters, fried oysters, and/or the event’s much-beloved oyster and scallop supper.

The Tyne Valley Oyster Festival is actually TWO big celebrations packed into one 5-day festival – the Rock the Boat MusicFest and the Canadian Oyster Shucking Championship. And really, what better pairing is there than PEI oysters and rock music?!

This year’s music line-up includes Canadian legends Randy Bachman and Our Lady Peace along with renowned bands and musicians including Default, The Road Hammers, Arsenal Mills, Hired Guns, and Andrew Waite.
