Event Navigation


The Great American Lobster Fest is the Midwest’s largest lobster and seafood festival. We’re returning for our 3rd year to Chicago’s legendary Navy Pier on Labor Day Weekend, September 2nd and 3rd (And now a Lobster Brunce Cruise on September 4th)! Enjoy live lobster flown in fresh from the cold waters of the East Coast, live music performances, family friendly activities, unique craft shopping, and cold beverages. What’s not to love!?

Not a lobster fan? Not to worry, many other great food options will be available including steak, surf & turf, vegetarian options, and more!

The Great American Lobster Fest is an all ages, family friendly event.
