As the rollout of details about this month's virtual Oyster Fest
continues, Arcata Main Street has unveiled its kits for celebrating at home. The at-home festival packages are available for pre-order through the organization's website for $140-$160. They include beer, wine or cider from local purveyors Eel River Brewing Co., Mad River Brewing Co., Gyppo Ale Mill, and Six Rivers Brewery, along with festival swag and, of course, two dozen oysters.
