The 2012 Lobster Festival will be held on
September 13, 14, & 15 2013
at Ports O’ Call Village, San Pedro CA
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA’S BEST ENTERTAINMENT BARGAIN! A Family Tradition Since 1999
The focus of the Lobster Festival is, of course, fresh steamed hot Maine lobster., flown in fresh daily. A lot of people want to know why we don’t serve Pacific lobster. The answer is simple: Pacific lobster is not in season during the fest.
There’s lots to eat at the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival in addition to lobster. The menu varies from year to year depending on the vendors, but we usually have many other seafood items including steamed and fried clams, fried shrimp, shrimp cocktail, roast corn, funnel cakes, and all varieties of traditional fair food, all done in the California way.
If seafood isn’t your thing, then you can dine on the finest ribs or tri-tip, chicken, Jamaican, Chinese, Thai and other international foods and desserts. Beer and wine is also available (responsible drinking and proof of age is strictly enforced). If you want to take a break and have a cocktail then get your hand stamped and stroll on over to the full bar at Ports O’ Call Restaurant immediately next to the festival entrance. Readmission is free if your hand is stamped.
Also showcased at the Festival is entertainment and activities for all ages. The entertainment changes every year, but it is always free. There may be a magician may be performing in the eating tent, a face painter in the kids’ area while the best up and coming rocks groups perform on the Main Stage in the park area. Past nationally renowned up and coming performers include Jason Mraz, Tristan Prettyman, Brother, Royal Crown Revue, Jumpin Jimes, Flattop Tom and his Jump Cats, Red and the Red Hots, Dave Wakeling & The English Beat, The Red Elvises (Siberian Surf Rock), Waylon Payne and other great musical acts.

COME FOR THE FEAST, STAY FOR THE FUN! ©
The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival proudly serves only lobsters from the Great State of Maine.
BEWARE OF IMPOSTER LOBSTERS
Maine lobster is like Russian Caviar or Vermont maple syrup: it seems like the only kind you can get. But the truth is that lobsters imported from Canada and elsewhere are often passed off as Maine lobster. Insist on the finest, demand genuine Maine lobsters, wild-caught in the cold, clean waters of the Gulf of Maine.
