Lambert's Bay Crayfish Festival 2016

The Lambert’s Bay ‘Kreef Fees’ is a well-loved annual festival and takes place in 2016 from the 29 April to 1 May 2016 in the diamond of the West Coast, Lambert's Bay. Expect fresh crayfish, real South African culture, live music and general fun in the sun.

The primary aim of the festival is simple, to provide lovers of the delicacy with fresh-from-the-ocean crayfish. This small fishing town predominantly relies upon the crayfish industry for its economy and livelihood – so much so that it is sometimes referred to as the crayfish mecca of South Africa. The availability of this prime seafood and the characteristic sandy white beaches make Lambert’s Bay a must-visit spot for holidays and festivals.

In addition to the crayfish itself, previous years have seen crayfish diving competitions, deli stalls and craft stalls and a comprehensive kiddy's play area.

Visitors to the festival will also be enthralled by some of the best home-grown musicians. Although the line-up hasn’t yet been disclosed, in previous years there have been live performances by Steve Hofmeyr, Snotkop and Jakkie Louw and others.

So, if you’re stuck for what to do over a weekend in late April, pop over to this quaint West Coast town to sip some beer, dine on seafood and partake in a host of fun, family-friendly activities!
