The Original Lobster Fest in Long Beach is Back for 2014!

August 22, 2014 by Brian Champlin

You a fan of the lobster? Then you need to get your butt over to the 18th annual Original Lobster Fest in Long Beach starting the first Friday of September.

Lobster tacos, lobster rolls, lobster on a stick… pretty much lobster any way, shape or form you can imagine.


From the organizers:

“The Original Lobster Festival has become a tradition to over thousands of festival goers annually. We combine local popular artists, Swing, Salsa, R&B/Motown, Decades 70s/80s Dance Bands, tons of Fresh Live Maine Lobsters steamed in the World’s Largest Cooker prepared and served by a Master Chef for that mouth watering taste, giant food court, children’s area, dance floor, two stages and beach bars to create the largest Lobster Festival outside of Maine, right here in Southern California.”
