Paddle in the Sea Kayak Festival

Special Events


Angus Atkinson won the 1996 Lobster Eating Contest during the annual county-wide Lobster Festival by using his car keys for picks.


Shane Ross, aka Chug, later set the all-time record of 3 lobsters in 3 minutes - his secret? Swallow the tails whole.


Shelburne's Waterfront is a hub of events and activity all summer long!  Unique and fun festivals and events have grown out of the local lifestyle.  Museums by the Sea is proud to participate in many community events such as Lobster Fest, Founders' Days, and the Whirligig Festival!
