Everyone’s favorite crustacean is celebrated this weekend at the Original Lobster Festival in Long Beach. A master chef steams up live Maine lobsters flown in daily for the event.

(Lobster Feast is not included in general admission; see website for detailed prices.) A giant food court offers numerous dining alternatives, and beach bars serve refreshments for the over 21 crowd.    

Festival goers are entertained with live music on two stages, a dance floor, and arts and crafts booths.

Saturday and Sunday from noon until 6pm, the Children's Stage showcases magicians, live reptiles and more. And no festival would be complete without inflatable bounces for the kids!  Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

Friday: 5pm-10pm

Sunday: noon-10pm


Parking at Marina Green costs  $10; parking at Pike's Place, (a 10-minute walk away) is $8 with validation.
