Explore Placencia Lobsterfest with Barefoot Services
Lobster aficionados, rejoice! The dates for the 18th annual Placencia Lobsterfest have been set for the weekend of June 24-26 in 2016. The beautiful sun-drenched Placencia Peninsula has been hosting the country’s most popular lobster festival for nearly two decades, offering foodies and seafood lovers a stunning array of innovative and tasty dishes made from the world’s favorite crustacean.
Hundreds of international visitors and Belizeans from all over the country are expected to attend this year’s festival. Organized by the Placencia Village Council and Placencia chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association, the three-day celebration of all things lobster will offer a full range of games, music, activities, drinks and, of course, food for the entire family.
The village of Placencia at the southern tip of the peninsula will feature dozens of cooks and teams from local restaurants, each vying to showcase their very best lobster recipes. Gourmands will have tasty variants, including stewed lobster, lobster curry, fiery hot spiced lobster, jerked lobster, lobster stew and even lobster kebabs. Hungry festivalgoers can also gorge themselves on a smorgasbord of fresh caught fish, shrimp, chicken, beef and pork offerings as well. Although vegetarians are a minority at the festival, there will be plenty of fresh local sides available.
Festivalgoers can slake their thirst with a sampling of some of Belize’s best beverages. Belikin Beer, the country’s leading manufacturer of beer, will have a variety of lagers and pilsners available. Domestic rum and other liquor producers will be on hand, offering a medley of fresh cocktails. Festivalgoers can also find fresh juices, smoothies and a range of other non-alcoholic drinks on sale at various vendor booths.
