Lobster Days comes to Connecticut for Memorial Day


Mystic Seaport plans to start the summer season and prepare for the cracking of thousands of lobster claws May 26-28 at the 27th annual Lobster Days.

Members of the Mystic Rotary Club will serve lobsters-in-the-rough from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Diners can enjoy their picnic-style meal under Mystic Seaport’s open-air Boat Shed where they can watch boats cruising on the Mystic River.

More than 3,000 lobsters will be cooked and served during the course of the weekend with all proceeds going to support the Rotary Club’s community organizations and projects.

In addition to a great meal, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the water as the Museum’s boat rental dock opens for the season and the 1908 steamboat Sabino and catboat Breck Marshall will be operating a regular schedule of brief cruises on the Mystic River.
