The Lobsterfest at Newport Beach began in 2009 as a fundraiser for the Costa Mesa and Newport Beach Sunrise Rotary Clubs. Lobsterfest, now in its eighth year, is now its own foundation and has maintained a 501 (c) 3 status since April, 2013. Currently, proceeds from the event have supported the Newport Sunrise Rotary Club, Costa Mesa Rotary Club, Newport-Mesa Schools Foundation, Leadership Tomorrow, Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire, and New Directions for Women.
This annual beach party takes place in an incomparable Newport Back Bay setting with boats lining the periphery at Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina from 3pm to 8pm on Sunday, August 7th, 2016. Attendees can enjoy the mile of beach front with swimming and playground on the beach for kids, while the Back Bay nature preserve can be experienced by renting a kayak or bicycle available on the premises.
Maine lobster is flown in fresh on the morning of the event and prepared on site. While feasting, you will enjoy live entertainment on from our stage located on the beach — all that and the opportunity help raise funds for local charities. A percentage of the proceeds go to Leadership Tomorrow and Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire.
