2012 San Pedro Lobsterfest Schedule

The San Pedro Business Association [SPBA] has released the  schedule of events for the 2012 San Pedro Lobster Festival. The one-week celebration is going to be bigger and better than ever with the theme “Lobster Crawl 2012”

This year the event organizers have added a new dimension to the festival, the introduction of Lobster Crawl 2012 passport. The passport, which will be available shortly, will allow you to collect stamps at every venue during the week’s celebrations. Each stamp will entitle the passport holder with a ticket to enter into a grand raffle of a vacation package for two to the San Pedro Lobster Festival 2013. The package includes complimentary hotel stays, tours, golf cart rental, bar tabs, dinner and many more surprises. The raffle will be drawn on the night of the Block Party.

The annual San Pedro Lobsterfest Block Party has always been the main highlight of the week long festivities and this year promises to top the chart. Entertainment for the week will feature Belize’s well-known Garifuna Collective, Panerrifix Steel Band hailing from Our Lady of Guadalupe RC School in Belmopan and San Pedro’s Gino and the Shack Shakers.

    Hey Stuart, glad I could help and that you will not miss the fun this time, it is such a good party.

    I would pick a day where there is a night time event only. If you get a second wind you might decide to go and if not you can chill out at home and catch the next one. Or you could Pick the event that you would least likely go to and schedule atm tour for that day.

    Hi tacogirl, I have followed you on tripadvisor. Thanks for all of your help.
    We are coming into San Pedro for Lobsterfest. We missed it by a week last time we were there.

    The schedule looks like fun, so much so that we are having a hard time planning a day trip to ATM. Which day during the festival do you think is one that could be missed since I understand we might come home late that day. Any opinion on it?

    Hi Joe they are $15 bzd. They are a fun souvenir. If you like I can let Dianne know you want a couple and pass along your contact info.

  4. Joe says:

    How much are the coozies? Will they be readily available at the Lobsterfest? My gf and I will be down there for the first time ever (to Belize and the Lobsterfest) and they look like a great souvenir!

  5. tacogirl says:
