BVI Food Fans Gear Up For The 2021 Anegada Lobster Festival

Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands, 24th November, 2021 ̶  One of the British Virgin Islands’ most popular annual culinary events is making a strong comeback this year. The Anegada Lobster Festival is getting ready to welcome foodies from the BVI, the Caribbean and international destinations, to the island of Anegada from November 26 to November 28, 2021.

Part of the activities roster for the annual BVI Food Fête, the Anegada Lobster Festival is designed as a scavenger hunt that encourages its attendees to explore various restaurants and attractions in Anegada and sample a variety of dishes featuring the island’s spiny lobster. The event is produced by the BVI Tourist Board & Film Commission and sponsored by Road Town Wholesale, CCT Global Communications and Cape Air.

According to Director of Tourism Clive McCoy, “the Anegada Lobster Festival will kick off BVI Food Fête 2021.  There will be 10 participating restaurants, live entertainment, exciting excursions, opportunities to win prizes and of course, tantalising lobster dishes. Our restaurants have gotten quite creative this year and will showcase dishes such as curried lobster, jerk lobster, lobster beignets, lobster fritters, lobster quesadilla, to name a few. One of the restaurants will even feature vanilla lobster ice-cream!”

A new BVI Food Fete event dubbed Jost Van Dyke Fish & Fungi Frenzy, is set for Thursday, December 30, 2021. That event will have a similar format to the Anegada Lobster Festival, encouraging patrons to restaurant and bar hop around Jost Van Dyke, sampling a variety of mouth-watering fish dishes, while exploring the island.

“We are thrilled to welcome our residents and visitors back to Anegada and the BVI for this event. Our digital Anegada Lobster Festival Experience Guide contains all you need to know about the event including, menus of participating restaurants, ferry schedules, an island map, health and safety protocols and fun activities. Persons attending the weekend event are encouraged to download the guide at this link before departing for Anegada.” Mr. McCoy added.

Visitors arriving in the BVI for the Anegada Lobster Festival can fly or ferry to Tortola and connect to Anegada via scheduled ferry or private air or sea charter directly to the island. While most accommodations on Anegada are sold out, other options include staying overnight on Virgin Gorda or Tortola and commuting by ferry, boat or air charter or chartering a sailboat or motor yacht to spend the weekend in Anegada.
