The festival draws nearly 7000 people each year, with thousands coming to enjoy all things lobster! One of the most popular attractions at the Lobster Festival is the ‘Lobster Spinning Wheel’, where ticket holders can win a freshly cooked lobster! The Wheel spins every 5 minutes between 10am and 3pm.

Both kids and adults have so much enjoyment with the plethora of attractions and activities during the Kilcunda Lobster Festival. This is a dog-friendly event, but dogs MUST BE FRIENDLY, be on leads and be kept under control at all times and a poop pick-up event!

The lobster festival is a great community event, and you are certain to have a good time.  Bring cash, as EFTPOS is generally not available at the stalls.

There are dozens of stalls to explore, with all kinds of food and drink, especially mouth-watering lobster lunches all day. Homemade preserves, arts, and crafts will also be on display and for sale.

Live music adds to the fantastic energy of the festival, making it unlike any other you’ve ever been to! A guaranteed good time for all awaits you at the event; it’s no surprise that some 7,000 people make their way to Kilcunda each year for this event alone.

The Kilcunda Lobster Festival is free of charge. Bring the entire family to a memorable summer event with good food and vibrant energy. It is a summertime event not to be missed!
