I have no idea why Cincinnati has any kind of seafood festival. We don’t live by an ocean. The whole thing screams Norwalk virus to me. But I don’t make the rules, so Fountain Square this weekend will host the Guinness Oyster Festival. McCormick & Schmick’s will provide some raw and cooked oyster dishes, there will be an oyster shucking/eating contest and a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. There’s also going to be Celtic stuff for sale and live music from bands like Mia Carruthers & the Retros, Bukra and more. Noon on Fountain Square. Free.
