Thank you to the thousands of people who visited the Town of Amite City and the Amite Oyster Festival this year. We contribute our success to you! See you next year!
The Amite Oyster Festival offers a full weekend of family fun, food and music! Dine on fresh oysters on the half shell and oyster po-boys. Watch rodeos at the Florida Parishes Arena or listen to live entertainment from Cajun, country, rock and roll, and reggae artists. And don't miss the carnival rides and various arts and crafts vendors.
