OysterFest to charge for admission

Continue reading below

For the first time, the Wellfleet OysterFest is charging an admission fee. The Cape Cod Times reported that fee for anyone over age 12 is $5, or $8 for both Saturday and Sunday. The festival manager said the money will help improve safety and support future festivals. The festival began as a small hometown event in 2002, but it has grown over the years, along with the costs for sanitation, insurance, and paid staff. Attendance recently reached 25,000 over its two-day span.
