One of the most exciting festivals of the year takes place every June on the beautiful Placencia Peninsula in southeastern Belize. Timed to coincide with the official opening of fishing season, Lobsterfest is a popular celebration of everything and anything related to lobster.

In 2019, the Placencia Lobsterfest will be held between June 21-23 and will feature dozens of savory and interesting dishes made from the world’s most popular crustacean. Although classic recipes like grilled lobster served with melted butter will be on hand, there will be dozens of other varieties on offer during Lobsterfest, including lobster ceviche, lobster pizza, lobster spring rolls, lobster pies, lobster fajitas, and upscale gourmet dishes worthy of a five-star restaurant.

Eating and enjoying lobster may be the principle draw for this popular festival that regularly draws hundreds of attendees, but there are plenty of other exciting activities as well. More than 50 booths will be set up to serve cold drinks, other kinds of seafood, sell artwork, handicrafts, games, and face painting for kids of all ages. And everyone will be dancing thanks to plenty of live acts performing a variety of musical styles.
