The Crab Fest Experience
You don't just go to Crab Fest
The Louisbourg Crab Festival is more than an event...it's an experience. Whether you're looking for the best seafood, the best entertainment or the best of friends - you're part of the experience - you are the experience. 24 years ago a group of local citizens had an idea of starting a Crab Festival. What a better way to end the summer and celebrate the delicious landings of the local crab fishermen at the same time. Little did they know then, that this little idea would grow into a world-famous festival with people making it a point of returning year after year. Since its humble beginnings in the summer of 1993, the Crab Fest has improved and grown stronger each year. More than 5000 people each year make the Crab Fest experience one not to miss!
