We’re famous for our scrumptious seafood here on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Fishing off the coast in those great Atlantic waters means you can always count on that fresh from the wharf flavour.

Now everyone’s got their favourite sort of seafood, but come February – from Peggy’s Cove all the way to Barrington – you best be sure we are all about L-O-B-S-T-E-R!

Make plans to sip and savour from the first day of February straight through to its delicious lobster-filled last day. Restaurants all throughout the South Shore will unite in celebration of that tasty crustacean – serving up everything from luscious lobster benny to the traditional lobster boil suppers and of course all those really yummy lobster rolls.

Oh, and can we talk about the chowder?! Truth be told we cherish the chowder and all those who can create it. Matter of fact, one of our signature festival events is the Lobster Chowder Chowdown Showdown during which restaurants compete to become the annual people’s choice of chowders and take home the coveted Golden Ladle Trophy.

But it’s not just the culinary crews that get in on all the festival fun. Our incredible cast of wine, beer and spirits creators and purveyors partake in all sorts of special events too. From partnered tastings and tours to signature brews and blends – you’re invited to toast and taste and take it all in during Lobster Crawl.

Stay tuned for all the marvelous menus and spectacular sip and savour events in store for Lobster Crawl 2022.
