By Breaking Belize News Staff: Excitement is mounting in the seaside village of Placencia, Belize as it gears up to host its annual Lobster Festival. Set to take place from July 14th to 16th, 2023, the much-anticipated event celebrates the local lobster, a staple of Belizean cuisine.

The quaint village will morph into a haven for seafood enthusiasts as local restaurants, vendors, and chefs come together to present a myriad of lobster-themed dishes. The three-day gastronomic extravaganza will offer everything from lobster ceviche and grilled lobster tails to inventive lobster pizzas. This culinary carnival brings together top home cooks and professional chefs from around the Peninsula, all dedicated to showcasing their unique takes on the crustacean.

The festival also offers a rich cultural tapestry of activities beyond the culinary delights. Attendees can immerse themselves in a lively atmosphere complete with live music, dances, and friendly competitions. 

In harmony with the culinary and entertainment offerings, the village’s picturesque setting adds an extra charm to the event. Framed by sandy beaches, swaying coconut trees, and the azure Caribbean Sea, Placencia presents an idyllic backdrop for this annual celebration. Visitors can explore local shops and galleries, bask on the beach, or stroll along the village’s charming walkways.

Since 1999, the festival has also been a stage to honor the community’s fishing heritage through the Placencia Fishing Tournament. Both locals and visitors can team up with a local boat captain to compete for cash prizes. 

The Placencia Lobster Festival has been a highlight of the Belizean calendar since its inception, and this year’s edition promises to be no different. From enjoying the best of Belizean lobster delicacies to dancing to the sweet sounds of Caribbean Steel Drums, Soca, Reggae, and more, the festival offers non-stop entertainment. As the preparations continue, keep an eye on Placencia.com for the latest updates and make sure to grab your commemorative Placencia Lobsterfest t-shirt when you arrive!

One thing’s for sure – Placencia Village is ready to celebrate, and we can’t wait to see you there.
