LOBSTERS ARE COMING TO TEXAS!

Welcome to the official website of the the El Paso Original Lobster Festival.

The 2019 El Paso Original Lobster Festival will be held April 26-28, at Ascarate Park located in the heart of El Paso, Texas.

The El Paso Original Lobster Festival provides Fresh Live Maine Lobster, prepared to mouth-watering perfection in the World’s Largest Cooker. You can also dance away the calories to a variety of popular artists throughout the day on the dance floor, enjoy tasty eats in the food court, take a Free Souvenir E-Photo, check out the Arts & Crafts booths, sip on adult beverages (beer, wine, specialty drinks — infamous Signature drink "Screaming Lobster" and Margaritas), and catch a freakshow that tests the limits of the human body, that’s known for wild, cringe-worthy stunts. There is something for everyone, including kids, Magic Show (as seen on America's Got Talent), Face Painting, Inflatable Bounces, Laser Tag and Gaming Truck. Plus we will have a third stage with electronic music, a cross-section of genres with lighting FX effects all day and night.

Lobster

What is Best? Steamed or Boiled Lobster

We serve up the most delicious lobster by steaming (not boiling) Fresh Live Maine Lobster in the world’s largest cooker which steams 1000 pounds of lobster at a time to mouth-watering perfection.

There is no better way to enjoy lobster than to steam it. Here’s why: steaming is a more gentle process of cooking the meat and it preserves more flavor and tenderness than washing it away if you boil it. For true lobster lovers, steaming is the way to go. It is the only way to bring out that flavorful sweetness that is so heavingly delicious.
