Ready those shuckers and loosen your gullets, Bay Area! The 17th annual SF Oysterfest is back at Sharon Meadow this weekend, and Showbams wants you to suck up all the fun.

The West Coast’s largest oyster festival is taking over Golden Gate Park’s iconic “Hippie Hill” from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. this Saturday with an eclectic roster of music and culinary talent that’s bigger and better than ever.

The day will feature headlining performances from Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo, SF deep house legend Miguel Miggs and Bay Area rapper/singer/producer Iamsu! (with special guests) as well as early-morning performances from post-disco buzz band De Lux, Mexico’s “avanzada regia” crossover pioneers Kinky, and local artists GZRUS and Johnny Maxwell.

Oysters, seafood and a variety of other local fare will be provided by Absolute BBQ Express, Bacon Bacon, Drip! Mobile Espresso & Coffee, El Porteno, Gerard’s Paella, Gourmet Faire, Mayes Oyster House, Me So Hungry SF, New Orleans Catering, Tante’s and Savourie Streets.

Plus, for the first time ever, the fest will be hosting a new wine and oyster pairing tent that offers guests the opportunity to sample a variety of the shellfish and caviar, along with an exclusive selection of wines chosen by a number of Bay Area chefs.

Early arrivals will not only get to choose from an abundance of seafood, but they will also receive $1 off all oysters prior to 2 p.m. Meanwhile, the crowd favorite “Suck and Shuck” contest returns once again this year, and those who are interested in participating should send an email to sfoysterfest@gmail.com.

GA tickets are almost gone but are still available to purchase here, while a limited number of tickets remain for the private tables backstage, which can seat up to eight and include a full bar, table service, table-side seafood platters, a buffet, expedited Will Call, a meet-and-greet opportunity, and an event T-shirt and tote bag. Children who are under the age of 12 and are accompanied by a parent will receive free admission. For more information, visit Oysterfest’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
