Celebrating “all things oyster” isn’t new to Kingfisher where on any given night the diners can find an abundance of bivalves on the menu.
But every October for the past seven years, Tucson’s favorite seafood restaurant holds their Oysterfest. The event happens on UofA Homecoming Saturday (This year October 28th from 10am-2pm.)
Well-trained shuckers will be in the tent that Kingfisher sets up in the parking lot showing off their skills. Oysters are culled from all over. Choices may include Totem Point from Washington, North Shore Gold from Canada or Kumiai from Mexico.
Oyster stew, Oysters Rockefeller, both New England and Manhattan chowders, fried oysters and Murph’s sinfully good Oysters Storyville will be available.
Kingfisher Oysterfest is not to be missed.
