I took my daughter and her friend to the event. We all had a blast. We enjoyed the variety of music and the venue was perfect. The food was good....though ridiculously expensive.

The Jameson booth was way too slow to get a drink other than beer. Competition would have been a good idea

No signs at the entrance and nobody to explain the situation. We laughed and mocked the lack of a plan. We made it in -but come on, do the homework.

Not our cup of tea, attended to accompany our 30-something son. Guiness was $8 per cup, a little steep. Oysters were briney and fresh, a must. Peaceful crowd.

Perfect Sat in SF. Weather was amazing, vendors were plentiful, and DEVO was amazing. Still don't know how I hadn't heard of this until the 14th round.

My first time to the Oysterfest was a great experience! We went to see DEVO and had a blast lounging on the grass, eating oysters and drinking beers. Besides the fun show... continued

Started an hour late due to someone who works for the festival had all the scanners and showed up late or something. But the oysters were yummy and the beer, entertainment and the beautiful made it all better! Good times.

The admission, food and beer was way overpriced. The band sounds like a bad 80s rock band (I listen to rock), but I couldnt tolerate it.

The oysters were a bit overpriced (for an oyster-themed festival) and the music was OK. I'd definitely go again, but only at the goldstar price -- anything over 30 bucks for this is a crime.
