Lobster Festival & Tournament

Schooners Lobster Festival & Tournament

It is with regret that we have officially cancelled the 2021 Schooners Lobster Festival. We tried hard to make it work, but the many complications posed by COVID make it impossible for us to plan the kind of festival everyone has come to expect... BUT, we have high hopes up for bringing Schooners Lobster Festival back in '22!

The Schooners Lobster Festival & Tournament is recognized as the largest seven day lobster festival and tournament in the Southeast.

With huge Local Lobsters on the weigh-in scales, fresh lobster prepared every mouth-watering way you can imagine, and the Annual Schooners Sand Sculpting Contest, it is a HUGE event that draws thousands of divers and lobster fans from all over the Southeast. Lobster Tournament divers compete in a variety of categories including Spiny Lobster, Shovelnose Lobster and Big 6.
