Oysterpalooza 2009… that’s all I need to say…

… but I am going to say more.

What a day of happy people eating fresh local oysters, drinking beer, listening to amazingly good local music, and dancing until they could dance no more. This is one of Arann’s big annual projects that he does in collaboration with the Rocker Oysterfeller’s team. The epic event is not without a lot of work and publicity (which brought more people out this year than ever before and brought some unexpected hurdles like figuring out where to park all those cars.) In the end people were patient and remembered the point of the occasion was to chill out, eat oysters, listen to talented musicians and have a good time, and I think the photos show the mission was accomplished.

It was a super fun day and I can’t wait for 2010. Maybe there will be t-shirts next year… just a suggestion… but who doesn’t want a t-shirt that says Oysterpalooza?

  3. hi Paige

    FAB pictures. My boyfriend and I stumbled across Oyster Palooza when we were on hol in May (all the way from Scotand!) and we had such a fun afternoon. Loved the food, the chat and the music.

    I would definitely have bought a t-shirt – I’m thinking they could also do one about the milking song or chicken dance too?!
