Stranraer Oyster Festival Reveals Programme for 2023.

Stranraer Oyster Festival has revealed its full programme for 2023 alongside a pledge to ‘go greener’ and help safeguard the wild, native oyster bed that the festival celebrates.

Taking place from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 September, Stranraer Oyster Festival has quickly become established as one of the biggest food festivals in Scotland, and a must-visit for oyster enthusiasts, with visitors attracted from all over the UK.

Michael Caines, Tony Singh, Julie Lin and Felicity Cloaks are among the chefs demonstrating their culinary flair. They’ll join local chefs, artisan traders, musicians and skilled oyster shuckers at the three-day festival in south west Scotland. The Opening Ceremony on Friday 15th September at 6pm will see the crew of The Vital Spark land one of the first native oyster catches of the season. The oysters are piped ashore by Loch Ryan Pipe Band and the landing will be followed by an evening of live music, celebrity chef cookery demos and a spectacular fireworks and aerobatics display.
