New York Oyster Week is a production of The OysterHood, a global, year round community of oyster consumers, producers, distributors, shuckers as well as many others with interests in oysters, aquaculture and coastal consciousness.


New York Oyster Week is the flagship production of The OysterHood, your global headquarters for oyster appreciation, information and experiences. 

Our mission is to showcase and celebrate the oyster people, places and processes that create and present oysters. In doing so we strive to protect, preserve and restore oyster habitat and be a "rising tide” for all of those who enjoy, produce, distribute or serve oysters. Please feel welcome to join us on our never-ending exploration and celebration of the oyster's role in history, culture, cuisine, economies and eco-systems, everywhere!


We create opportunities for brands and destinations to engage in Oyster-Related Marketing. Our content and experiences attract, engage, excite and enchant high-value, value-driven (not price-driven) consumers.

Our primary media and focus is experiential, as we believe that bringing our community and brand partners together in fun and edu-taining oyster-centric experiences. We have found this to be the best way to be authentic and bring maximum value to our community, brands and all stakeholders in the oyster industry.
