Be a 2017 Sponsor

The goal of the Arcata Bay Oyster Festival is to spotlight local businesses, aquaculture, craft breweries and wineries, food and music. Partnerships with area businesses and community members are paramount to ensure the success of the annual Oyster Festival event.

Arcata Main Street Oyster Fest guests are a diverse crowd (over 13,000 of them!), giving you the opportunity to reach your marketing and community outreach goals while supporting an extraordinary Humboldt County tradition.

Proceeds from the 27th annual Oyster Festival fund Arcata Main Street and projects that enhance our downtown and the community.  Arcata Main Street is a 501c4 non-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Directors and an Events & Marketing Director. The Oyster Festival and Arcata Main Street depend on the generosity of our sponsors, so we thank you very much for your support!
