The Pemaquid Oyster Festival, an annual celebration of the working waterfront and the Damariscotta River where the Pemaquid oyster is farmed, is set for Sunday, September 24 in Damariscotta. Last year over 15,000 oysters were served at the event, which benefits the Edward A. Myers Marine Conservation Fund. The celebration includes music, educational exhibits, boat rides, and lots of oysters harvested fresh from the Damariscotta River that morning. (There is also a menu with lots of choices other than oysters!) The event is free of charge and takes place from noon to dusk right on the shore of the Damariscotta River at historic Schooner Landing Restaurant and Marina on Main St. in Damariscotta and at near-by businesses.
