Get your claws out, because the Great American Lobster Fest is here.

The largest lobster and seafood festival in the midwest, the GALF makes its Detroit debut after a successful five-year run in Chicago. Live lobster will be flown fresh from the East Coast and will be stuffed in everything from rolls, fries, and tacos, with a “lobster meal” option for those looking for a full-on fill-up. In addition to music and activities, the event will also feature a mess of “land food” and an array of desserts to please less adventurous appetites.



The Great American Lobster Fest will begin at noon Friday, Sept. 14 through Sunday, Sept. 16 in Hart Plaza; americanlobsterfest.com; Event is free with a suggested donation of $5 for local charities, tickets for a lobster meal are $39, individual food and drink tickets can be purchased for $2 each.
