Presented by the BC Shellfish Growers
Association, shellfish farmers join together every year in June with
local food and wine producers and culinary professionals for an
exhibition of the Comox Valley's shellfish prowess. Originating in
2007, the festival has grown in signifance and scope to become a must
see event for shellfish lovers.
Baynes Sound, on the south end of the Comox
Valley, is the source of the world-renowned Fanny Bay oyster, and home
to numerous shellfish aquiculture operations.
