Belizean Dreams: Where History is made Every Lobster Season!
Annual Belize Lobster Fest
Each year, Belize welcomes the lobster season with parties, events, and festivals, drawing crowds from around the world. If you have yet to see what all the excitement is about, make 2020 your year of the lobster!
Do Not Miss Lobster Fest
Belizean Dreams Resort staffers love a good party as much as they love their guests. So, when the annual lobster catch becomes headline news every year, what better excuse to promote community, great food, and tradition than by throwing the resort’s signature Lobster Fest?
This annual event began popping up on Belize calendars back in 1998. It’s gone from the occasional feast to a month-long celebration, which is why Belizean Dreams Resort’s interpretation of this holiday always surpasses the expectations of guests who are already predisposed to love this posh property.
How important is lobster fishing to Belize? It harkens back quite far, Maya people were the first to catch and serve these crustaceans thousands of years ago. Over the centuries, this shellfish went from being the lowest form of marine life in the sea to the star of the ocean, becoming one of the nation’s top exports.
According to government statistics, by 2015, around 484,891 pounds of lobster had been sold in a single year, bringing in revenues estimated at BZ15,270,000. That’s a lot of shellfish! Lobster Fest attendees are lucky recipients of this economic evolution.
The skinny on Lobster Fest
Dates for Belizean Dreams’ extended party are on select Fridays during July & August. Make your flight arrangements accordingly so you’re on hand for all of the festivities. And while you’re invited to eat as much lobster as you can consume, take advantage of a long list of activities designed to keep you busy in-between meals.
