More than 100 vendors, five entertainment stages and two parades equal one fantastic festival—the 52nd Urbanna Oyster Festival this Friday and Saturday, November 6-7. Oysters fresh from the Rappahannock River will be available again. The bounty that sustained locals for centuries is being dredged just a few miles from Urbanna.

Most of the oysters at the Urbanna Oyster Festival this year will be local oysters harvested in the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers and Chesapeake Bay. The Oyster Festival was started 52 years ago as a way to honor an industry that played such a dynamic role in the economic life of the Town of Urbanna and Middlesex County.
