Binge on Bivalves at Newport Oyster Festival

The shellfish-packed weekend supports a worthy cause – the health of Rhode Island's marine life – and each ticket includes six local oysters, a beverage, live music and more.

Held on Bowen’s Wharf and sponsored by Moët and Chandon, the event promises to be a fun-filled weekend to support a worthy cause – the health of the marine life of Rhode Island.

The Dish: On the Farm with Bluff Hill Cove Oyster Company

The oyster farm’s Winter Pearl and Gansett Point varieties are served at White Horse Tavern, Chair 5, Coast Guard House and George's of Galilee.

On a fall morning in late-September, Rhode Island Monthly headed to Harvey Cataldo’s oyster farm in Bluff Hill Cove on Point Judith Pond to see how he grows his two oyster varieties, Gansett Points and Winter Pearls.
