There is no doubt that South West Nova Scotia leads the way in the lobster industry - both in catch and export. Each year, Shelburne County celebrates this vital industry during their Lobster Festival. Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s Lobster Expo and Market, we are hosting it again in the hope of being bigger and better than last year. Our aim is to highlight and bring together leading lobster/seafood suppliers, buyers and industry representatives from around Sou'west Nova and the Province to showcase their products and services. Our Lobster Expo and Market aims to be a great opportunity to reach your target market.
We have also added a market portion to this event, which will allow local vendors, artists, crafters and more to sell and market their products to attendees.
We invite you to take part in our Lobster Expo and Market, June 3rd & 4th at the Barrington Arena. The event will run Friday from 10AM to 4:30PM, (we will close the doors at 4:30 and re-open at 6PM in preparation of the Great Lobsterman Challenge beginning at 7PM, vendors are welcome to remain open during the evening entertainment) and Saturday from 9AM to 1PM. Last year we saw well over 800 people through the doors for our first year of this event and we hope to have even more this year.
Table rentals will be $50 each for the two day event. Please reserve early, as we have limited space. Reservations will be on a first come, first serve basis. All rentals can be done by phoning or emailing Suzy at 637-8166 or email@example.com.
During the two day event we also hope to have demonstrations/info sessions taking place on stage such as lobster trap building, safety demonstrations/talks, etc. Please let us know if your company/organization would be interested in taking part.
