The Appomattox Oyster & Seafood Festival is returning in 2021 after the unfortunate cancellation in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions – but it is back and chuck full of seafood-loving fun!
The Appomattox Oyster and Seafood Festival, also known as the APX Oyster Fest, is an event sponsored by the Appomattox County Historical Society as a fundraiser to help the organization gather and preserve Appomattox County history.
The event has seen continued growth over the years, which has required that the APX Oyster Fest seek a larger venue, and we are excited to announce that we have partnered with the DeVault Family Vineyards in Concord, VA, which has the ability to accommodate 2,000 attendees, to host the 2021 APX Oyster Fest!
The event will feature live music all day, craft vendors, wineries, breweries, and distilleries, providing the ingredients for a fun-filled event! There will be games & activities for young & old alike!
Food vendors will have a variety of seafood, including fresh Virginia Oysters, crab cakes, gumbo, fish, and for those who would rather be different, we will have BBQ, Hot dogs, Hamburgers, Kettle corn, and other delicious foods!
Tickets, when available, will be sold through our website, AppomattoxHistorical.org, as well as local ticket outlets. Ticket prices will be as follows;
- Tasting Tickets (allow for the (free) tasting, drinking, and purchasing of alcoholic beverages) -$15 in advance, $25 at the Gate
- General Admission Tickets (non-drinking, for those 13 years & older) - $10
- Kids 12 & under - $5
- Kids 6 & under - FREE.
