Anegada Lobster Festival to Go Ahead


By the Caribbean Journal staff

The popular Anegada Lobster Festival on the island of Anegada in the British Virgin Islands will go ahead this year, the BVI Tourist Board announced.

The now-annual festival will take place in November despite damage to the island as a result of Hurricane Irma.

“An epicurean’s delight, this annual event will celebrate the BVI’s fresh, delectable seafood offerings exclusively available on the island of Anegada,” the tourist board said in a statement.

The festival highlights the island’s remarkable collection of lobster-focused restaurants, with events like a lobster crawl and special dinners.

More updates will be shared as details are finalized.

“The local community looks forward to participating in this special culinary celebration,” the board said.
