Lobster Fest and Rendezvous
August 19-20 Grand Traverse Sail and Power Squadron Rendezvous at Northport Municipal Marina
The premier event of the summer is the annual lobster fest in Northport on the Leelanau Peninsula. Festivities begin on Friday night with Brats, Popcorn and bonfire. Lansing Sail and Power Squadron sponsors breakfast on Saturday morning (a fundraiser for our squadron) and the festivities wrap up Saturday night with the famous lobster bake.
This popular event can be reached via boat or car. All events take place north of the Northport Marina. If you have not made room reservations yet you should look in the Traverse City area – most hotels on the peninsula are booked at this time. There are some Bed and Breakfasts which may have openings – Omena, Suttons Bay and Leland are the other towns on the peninsula which are close to Northport.
It’s all hands on deck for Saturday morning. Lansing hosts the breakfast and we will need helpers with set up, cooking, serving and clean up. The Dudleys and Bezdeks are organizing the event; if you plan to attend please contact one of them to let them know you can help out.
Registration deadline is August 12. See registration form in the online Crow's Nest.
