The very best of food, music, and down home hospitality!

Home of the Canadian Oyster Shucking Championship and Rock The Boat MusicFest, the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival is a five day celebration of a small town with big spirit! This year marks our 53rd anniversary, and our schedule is full of events you and your family will love!


In Tyne Valley, every year is worth celebrating. For our 53rd year, we have decided to bring back Rock The Boat Musicfest, bringing you even more of Canada's best musicians.

This year's lineup features Finger Eleven and April Wine, along with Slowcoaster, Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys, and The Ellis Family Band.


From the inception of the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival, locally cherished seafood has always been centre stage. This year is no different. Everyone in attendance at select events recieve free oysters shucked by professionals from far and wide!

The festival also features The oyster and scallop supper which has always been a popular event since its humble beginnings 50 years ago. This meal showcases OUR delicious seafood, caught by our fisherman and prepared by the locals, just the way we like to indulge!

At this years Rock The Boat Festival, we are also hosting a wide variety of local food vendors that will make you briefly forget you are at a concert and not a world renowned food festival! More info on food vendors to come soon.


We are lucky to be home to one of the closest knit communities on PEI. Although we cherish those who have lived here for years, we welcome newcomers with open arms.

Come be a part of our family for the weekend, and you'll find yourself back here year after year.



If you aren't here, it "shucks" to be you!
