Seafood lovers prepare for Columbia's largest outdoor oyster roast as the 24th annual SC Oyster Festival returns Sunday, Nov. 27.

The annual event will take place at the Hampton-Preston Mansion from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and will feature steamed oysters for sale by the bucket from PEARLZ Oyster Bar. Attendees can also enjoy oyster shooters, fried oysters, and oyster gumbo from various vendors inside the festival.

Festival goers are encouraged to bring their chairs, blankets, oyster knives, and appetite as they enjoy the historic grounds of Columbia's most beautiful house museums. The admission fee includes entry to the grounds and live music all day. Arts and Crafts vendors will be on hand displaying their creations. Children under 12 are admitted free and can pay a nominal fee to enjoy amusements and games, making for a great day for the family.
