Oyster Festival absorbed into larger Wyong festival

The 17-year-old Ettalong Oyster Festival is to be absorbed into Wyong's three-year-old Lakes Festival, which will be rebadged as Central Coast Lakes Festival.

Central Coast Council has taken over the event, and it will now become just one of 26 events in the regional festival.

"This year we have expanded the Festival to Ettalong and Gosford, giving us more opportunities to activate the waterfronts all over the Central Coast," said Council's group leader Ms Julie Vaughan.

The Lakes Festival, started by the former Wyong Council, is in its third year.

Ms Vaughan said the 2017 festival would include 20 free events from November 10 to 19.

She described the Oyster Festival as "a new event hub at Ettalong".

"The Lakes Festival is just growing bigger each year and is now a true Coast-wide event," Ms Vaughan said.

"This year we have 26 events designed to activate, educate and celebrate our local waterways across 10 days at seven different locations so there's certainly something for everyone."

She said the Brisbane Water Oyster Festival had agreed to become part of the Lakes Festival.

She said the 10-day festival would feature a full program of sporting, family, cultural, educational and live music events on and surrounding the Central Coast's waterways including the Ettalong foreshore.
