Caye Caulker Lobster Fest - The original Belize Lobsterfest in its 18th year. The Festival starts on a Friday with the crowning of Miss Lobster Fest and last until the Sunday with all day beach party and the closing of the festival. Highlights and things to look forward each and every year is our Grand Opening Ceremonies held on the Saturday, live displays of live Lobsters, weighing in of the biggest Lobster for the weekend brought in by our local fishermen, our main dance event hosted on the Saturday Night and of course all sorts of delicious and mouth watering Lobster dishes. The atmosphere at Lobster Fest is always a festive one of fun, activities, and enjoyment for everyone from the youngest to the oldest family member.

Placencia holds its own Lobsterfest, which often is held the same weekend as Caye Caulker’s, and this event is judged by some to be better than either the San Pedro or Caye Caulker Lobster Fest. Let’s face it, Placencia has the best beaches in Belize and you can drive or catch the bus if you do not like the puddle jumper aircraft or tend to get seasick.

The Placencia Lobsterfest began in 1998 and is jointly organized by the local chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Associated and the village council of Placencia. All proceeds from the festivals go towards scholarships for local youth and improving the economy of the peninsula.
