No need to be crabby, Milwaukee, because lobster fest is finally here.

Lobster Fest claws its way onto Deer District schedule

The Great American Lobster Fest expands this year to include Milwaukee, hosting its Midwestern crustacean feast in the Deer District plaza in front of the Fiserv Forum, Friday-Sunday, Aug. 16-18.

The event, which started six years ago in Chicago and later grew to include Detroit, too, bills itself as the largest lobster and seafood festival in the Midwest. The three-day event includes fresh live lobsters flown in from the East Coast by Lobster Gram and spices it up not only with melted butter but with live music, craft vendors, cold drinks, family friendly fun and, also, non-seafood dishes.

Admission to the event is free, buthe Lobster Meal Experience is $29 through June 16, $34 from June 16 to July 16, and $39 from July 16 to Aug. 16. A VIP Meal Experience costs $69 through June 16, $79 from June 16 to July 16, and $89 from July 16 to Aug. 16.

"The Great American Lobster Festival is another outstanding event coming to Deer District this year," said Senior Vice President of Bucks Ventures and Development, Michael Belot.

"This is the first year that the regional festival is coming to Wisconsin, and we are thrilled that the plaza in front of Fiserv Forum will be hosting it."
