Popular summer annual Lobsterfest set to switch locations at the Jersey Shore

Posted: Updated:

The popular Labor Day event, Lobsterfest, is set to switch locations this summer, and will take place somewhere else on the Jersey Shore.

The event began a decade ago in Bradley Beach, but the town announced last week it was canceling the event because it wasn’t able to handle its demands.

The two-day event draws around 75,000 lobster lovers a year.

According to Richie Tarzian, the founder of the event, the popular annual seafood feast will take place somewhere on the Jersey Shore this summer.

Tarzian says they are in talks with multiple municipalities.
