Professional shuckers from Philly area raw bars will be competing against the Oyster House's own for the chance at city-wide shucking fame and a $200 Cash Prize. Amateurs will also have a chance at glory. After honing their skills during the Oyster Shucking Tutorial from Noon to 2 pm, they can belly up to the raw bar and compete for a $100 Oyster House Gift Card. Competitors will be judged by a trio of local celebs.

Starting at Noon, festivalgoers can learn how to Shuck with the Pros with Oyster House's own team of master shuckers. Meet local growers from Blue Island, Cape May Salts, Forty North and Sweet Amalia for Oyster Tastings and sample the salty fruits of their labor. 

Sample beers from Narragansett, cocktails from Philadelphia Distilling featuring Bluecoat American Dry Gin and Bay Vodka, or learn to pair wines from the experts at Moore Brothers. Meanwhile, the kiddos can go full Martha at the Craft Table, decorating oyster and clam shells, then visit the "Shell-fie" Photo Booth to pose with their props. 

The Shucking Competition will start at 2 o'clock sharp and goes until 4. Spectators will be treated to the freshly shucked oysters passed out to the crowd after each heat.
