A fun packed foodie celebration on the riverside. Expect family fun-times, heritage inspired happenings and many memorable moments! Join us as we herald the Landing of the Oysters at 1pm and then tuck into the delicious oysters, seafood and drinks on offer in the food marquee.

The Maldon Oyster and Seafood Festival is the definitive showcase of Maldon's best restaurants, chefs and leading food and drink brands. Maldon's latest, greatest and most exciting restaurants will serve up complimentary taster size signature dishes and oysters. For those with a bigger appetite or who simply want more, there will also be an opportunity to buy larger size dishes and seafood platters.

Festival visitors can indulge in a range of complimentary activities including wine, gin and craft beer & ale tastings. They can also buy these goods to take home. There will be live music and a DJ. As well as the complimentary drink tastings, there will be a themed cash bar.

A great day out to remember, all set against the stunning backdrop with the iconic barges and the beautiful river Blackwater.
