Lobster Festival—September 14
The start of lobster season in Bermuda is to be taken seriously. It’s about more than just simply eating lobster, but rather it’s about tradition, culture and heritage on our tiny island and should be celebrated accordingly.

The cost is $175 per person with wine and $125 per person without wine.
