Key West Lobsterfest

The annual festival commemorates the beginning of Florida Keys’ lobster season, which is August 6th through March 31st every year. We started our celebration at the Sunset Tiki Bar & Grille on Thursday for an amazing lobster boil. Each guest got a pound of deliciousness including lobster, shrimp, Andouille sausage, corn on the cob, and new potatoes. It was only $22 and we were lucky to get in because it ended up being sold out. Friday night, August 9th, we did the Duval crawl starting at sunset. We didn’t make it ‘til midnight but our official Lobsterfest ’13 t-shirt proves we survived. Saturday was the real Keys party – from noon to 11pm nearly 20 local chefs dished their take on the Florida spiny lobster at the street fair from the 100 through 500 blocks of Duval. Local, national, and regional bands rocked the outdoor party all day long. Dozens of vendors showcased some Keysy arts & crafts. The official site for the Lobster Season festival in Key West is keywestlobsterfest.com. It’s an annual event that only promises to keep getting better so check it out! For your own celebration when Key West Lobster Fest Ends, catch your own bugs and grill on! We like ours grilled, fried, or any way we can get it really! For one of our favorite preparations check out this delicious Florida Lobster Ceviche recipe. Check out our fully equipped selection of boats and get a Florida Keys rental boat for lobstering.
