- New Orleans Oyster Festival, New Orleans, June 5-6. Taking place in the historic French Quarter with its famous oyster eating and oyster shucking contests (see photo), this is one of the biggest food festivals in the country. The aim is to “educate the country about the benefits of the Louisiana Gulf Oyster, and honor and celebrate the restaurateurs and oyster farmers who have solidified the New Orleans French Quarter’s position as the Oyster Capital of America.” In light of the oil rig disaster in the Gulf, this year all proceeds will go to Save Our Coast.
