The Mercantile Hotel’s annual Guinness & Oyster Festival returns again this year to deliver a day of fun for foodies and families alike.

Feast the eyes & indulge the senses with food stalls featuring the signature seafood dishes of Head Chef HS Kim and live oyster shucking demonstrations.

This fun-packed celebration in The Rocks kicks off at 12pm, with a programme including talented local artists and Irish ensembles such as Blackwater and the infectious SHindig Irish Band.

Saturday will see the inaugural Oyster Opening Championship with a prize of $250 for the winner. Sunday festivities include spirited displays of dance from champion Irish dance companies.

Saturday night will host a retro themed “Stranger Things” event with 80s and 90s style now back in vogue (let your body move to the music – hey, hey, hey) and one of many month long events we’re hosting as part of Sydney Fringe.
