Lambertsbaai Kreeffees

Join in the merriment with plenty of shellfish at the annual Lambert’s Bay Crayfish Festival

Don your bibs and journey down to one of the West Coast’s most charming fishing villages for the 14th annual Lambertsbaai Kreeffees (Lambert’s Bay Crayfish and Cultural Festival). This annual seafood affair scuttles across the seasonal events calendar from Friday, 29 April to Sunday, 1 May 2016 at the Lambert’s Bay Caravan Park.  

Located approximately 260km (just under a three-hour drive) from Cape Town, Lambert’s Bay is known as the “Diamond of the West Coast” and considered to be Mzansi’s crayfish mecca. Famed for its good ‘old-fashioned’ West Coast hospitality, the yearly crayfish fiesta pairs its small-town culture with performances by some of the country’s best Afrikaans musical artists, a range of stalls selling everything from clothing and jewellery to food and gifts and, of course, an abundance of decadent crayfish.

While this gourmet delicacy usually tips the scale in price at restaurants, the coveted crustaceans are available throughout the festival at ludicrously low prices, making a weekend of indulgence surprisingly affordable. And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, there will also be numerous stalls selling a range of seafood fare, like snoek seafood potjies (a Cape Town treat), mussels, oysters, paella and more.

Details about the music line-up and entertainment are yet to be confirmed by the organisers, but watch this space for updates.


Tickets for this year’s event will be made available at the end of March 2016, so keep an eye out on this page or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
