It is “A decade of decadent celebration” as the BVI Tourist Board & Film Commission (BVITB&FC) celebrates the 10th year of the Anegada Lobster Festival (ALF). From November 25 to 27, this festival will welcome foodies from around the world to Anegada to celebrate the shared love of food, music, and fun.
The Anegada Lobster Festival will kick off on 25 November with a “lobster crawl”, a bar crawl covering many of the island’s favourite watering holes.
Ten restaurants on Anegada are anxiously looking forward to preparing their specialties for all to sample. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to indulge in lobster prepared in more than 10 different ways – lobster wraps, lobster ice cream, and grilled lobster, to name a few. This scavenger hunt-styled event encourages everyone to take advantage of the many available ways to get around the island while exploring all the participating restaurants and attractions on Anegada.
“We are excited to welcome our residents and visitors back to Anegada and the British Virgin Islands to celebrate this milestone with us. In addition to delectable dishes from 10 restaurants, there are amazing prizes and giveaways in store for everyone,” said Director of Tourism, Clive McCoy. “In addition to promoting gastronomical tourism, the event is expected to promote the major attractions to explore and the activities to experience on Anegada.”
The Anegada Lobster Festival caters to all food palates. Each restaurant will feature food for all dietary preferences, in addition to entertainment by live bands or popular deejays.
