May 25 & 26, 2018

The 11th Annual Lund Seafood Festival was held along the shores of Lund Harbour, BC, Canada.  People enjoyed fresh-cooked seafood, listen to local musicians, took tours, watched free cooking demonstrations, bought live shellfish, shopped at the craft booths, and sampled special menu items at the restaurants - there are activities for everyone and admission is always free!


The Lund Shellfish Festival is a “green event” with recycling bins placed at strategic locations. This event produces no garbage.


Limited parking is available so take the bus (see schedule at bottom of page) from Powell River for only $2.00 per person.  Or enjoy the weekend at one of Lund’s accommodation providers
