Placencia’s 2022 Lobster Fest was a Huge Success!

The 22nd Placencia Lobster Fest was held from July 15th to 17th on the Point at the Placencia Municipal Pier. It was well attended by both international and domestic tourists. There were a variety of activities, including face painting, a lobster cookoff, watermelon eating contests, boat parade, mechanical bull riding competition, and much more. Stig Da Artist, Dee Breezy, Kylo Eiley, Pantempters Steel Orchestra, and a host of local DJs energized the crowd with their impressive performances.

Lobster Fest 2022 was made possible through the efforts of the Placencia BTIA, Placencia Village Council, the planning committee, sponsors, vendors, and those who travelled from near and far to be there. We would like to thank the organizers for setting the bar high for local festivals and next year will only get better! We are are already planning for July 14th, 15th & 16th, 2023!!

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that the Placencia Breeze is back. The Placencia Breeze is the newspaper of the Placencia BTIA and covers local tourism and community news.

The 2022-2023 advertising kit is presently being finalized and will be available to one and all very soon. Also remember there are great advertising discounts for BTIA Members! It is a great time to think about joining!
