Placencia Lobsterfest 2015
It’s safe to say that the 2015 Placencia Lobsterfest was a blast!
The Lobster Festival is primarily a fundraising event held in the quaint, seaside village of Placencia. Coordinated by the Placencia Village Council and Placencia Chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association, the event plays a major role in tourism and the sustainable development of local business.

Upon arriving to the main area of the festivities, one could smell the distinct aroma of fresh seafood in the air being grilled and prepared in a plethora of flavours. There was definitely no shortness in creativity. At this point, of course, the only natural thing to do was…EAT! If Lobster wasn’t in your plans for the day, select vendors carried many other dishes running down the list of chicken, fish, steak, pork and a bunch of vegetarian delights. With an influence of Creole, Garifuna, Mayan and other cultures, Placencia’s Lobster Fest has become one of the major tourist engagement experiences in Belize.
