Well, yes. The photo does show mussels, not oysters; however, the the Festival is celebrating oyster and mussels and … the start of the oyster dredging season, the native Fal Oyster and the diversity of Cornish seafood, with four days of feasting, cooking demos, live music, food and craft stalls! And it’s back for its 22nd year.
