Oyster Festival

As a long-term member of the Norwalk Seaport Association, 

the Norwalk Stamp Club has participated in the annual 

Oyster Festival since 1981.  

  

Each year, the club selects a local-or-Connecticut-themed event 

to commemorate. We create a souvenir cover and design 

a special cancel.

Club member Chris Calle designs the cachet artwork and Fred Gagliardi designs the cancel.  U.S. postage stamps that fit the occasion are applied to the envelope. In cooperation with the U.S. Postal Service, the covers are hand-cancelled on each of the three days of the Oyster Festival.
