The Original Lobster Festival is back and it’s jam-packed with live entertainment, fun activities and as the name might imply tons of live main lobster. The Lobster Festival will be held at the Fountain Valley Sports park from Friday, September 8 to Sunday, September 10, 2023. This event was formerly called The Long Beach Original Lobster Festival, aka The Long Beach Lobster Festival, and was held at Rainbow Lagoon Park in Long Beach.
The event will include à la carte lobster-based dishes—including live Maine Lobster steamed in the world’s largest cooker, lobster sliders, lobster rolls, and lobster on-a-stick—and options for those in favor of non-seafood meals.
There will also be a lineup of live music, a karaoke lounge, a dance floor (complete with dance instruction), El Baston del Rey Tequila/Whiskey tastings, a VIP lounge and cabanas, plus many other activities.
The event is kid-friendly, and will include a magic show, games, balloon twisting, and face painting. Kids can also meet The Original Lobster Festival mascot.
