2013 Pick n Pay Oyster Festival

Don't miss out on this year's 2013 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival taking place from 28 June to 7 July 2013. This annual event is one of South Africa's most popular festivals


This year the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival boasts over 100 sport, food and lifestyle events on the calendar, and now festival organisers are presenting a line-up of Garden Route local and national musicians to get your feet tapping at the main festival grounds. The main venue on Waterfront Drive will host a variety of bands and musicians throughout the ten days of the festival, with at least one performance on 9 of the ten days.

Oysters are the delicacy of choice for gourmands, romantics, and those who appreciate the finer things in life. Knysna has long been synonymous with oysters and they remain the main feature at the festival. As always festival goers will be challenged to take part in the oyster shucking and oyster eating competitions.

This event invites restaurants in and around Knysna to showcase their talents by presenting their best oyster dishes to the judges and public. It’s a firm favourite, with oysters prepared according to a variety of unique and often innovative recipes.
