The second annual Mystic Oyster Festival was Sunday, August 17 at the Mystic Arts Center.
More than 12 restaurants across the state participated in the event--serving up their best signature dishes--and many also sponsored the festival. There was also live music, wine and beer pairings and activities for kids.
The Oyster Club, a local Mystic restaurant that opened three years ago, was the lead sponsor. The restaurant has been involved with the fundraiser since its inception last year.
Proceeds raised at the event will benefit New England science and sailing programs through New England Science & Sailing, or NESS, a foundation that holds educational programs to benefit the community.
