What is Lobsterfest?

Lobsterfest is a huge BBQ/lobster boil party open to the Huntsville community that St. Thomas Episcopal Church has been hosting since 1994.

Due to the pandemic, the event shifted to drive-through only for the past couple of years.   But this year, we’re back with eat-in, take out, and drive-thru options; LIVE music; artisan fair, and free kids’ activities.  Come shell-abrate 30 years of fellowship, hospitality, and outreach!

All Funds Raised at Lobsterfest Go to These Nonprofits

First Stop is a Huntsville-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to encounter the homeless where they are, connect them to critical services and support, and empower them toward independent sustainable living.

The Honduras Medical & Educational Mission provides essential care to Hondurans year-round. It provides educational help and resources, along with medical care! St. Thomas supports this organization throughout the year by dispatching medical and dental professionals to serve in clinics in Honduras as well as providing financial support for those students who choose to continue their education beyond the sixth grade.
