The Greater Charleston Restaurant Association will be hosting the 36th Annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival on Sunday, January 27, 2019, from 10 am-5 pm. Located on the 700+ acre grounds of historic Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, the Lowcountry Oyster Festival is the world’s largest oyster festival and has been named one of the “top 20 events in the southeast” by Southeastern Tourism Society.

Kids will have a blast at the festival’s Pluff-a-Pallooza Children’s Area, a celebration of the natural habitat of oysters including the Pluff Mud Craft Tent, the Sweet Grass Palace, Pluff Mud Cookie Decorating, a limbo with local mascots, an interactive noise play area, an air-dancer and much more. From face painting to oyster shell puppet making, there will be activities for children of all ages at the Pluff-a-Pallooza.

Tickets are $17.50 in advance and $25 the day of the event, with no fee for children under 10. In an effort to improve the flow of traffic around the event site, everyone is encouraged to do their part and carpool.

Advance tickets may be purchased online at and at all local Visitor Centers.
