The picturesque seaside village of Lambert’s Bay is just two and a half hours’ drive from Cape Town.

This seafood mecca, in the heart of crayfish country, is increasingly attracting holiday makers, weekenders and day-trippers.

The white beaches and blue sea offer ample opportunities for sea adventure and sports.

The first festival was held in March 2002 and is now in it’s 14th successful year. The Lamberts Bay Crayfish & Cultural Festival is now run as a registered Section 21 company, held by 18 members (7 Female/11 Male), of which there are five directors.

No member receives any remuneration for their services to the festival, they offer their time freely and for the good of the community of Lamberts Bay.

Unfortunately the 2017 Festival has been postponed due to the restrictions placed on crayfishing.
