~ LobsterFest SAVE THE DATE Saturday September 21, 2024 ~

What is LobsterFest?

Lobsterfest is our primary fundraising event held at Compo Beach every third Saturday in September rain or shine. Over 1500 meals of either twin lobsters or a steak with all the fixings are served. The ticket also includes wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, a live band and lots of entertainment for kids. It’s become a popular day for Westport families and an iconic community event.

We also have an impressive list of generous individuals and companies who sponsor Lobsterfest financially each year. We are extremely grateful to those sponsors!!!

We are also grateful to the 200+ volunteers from the community who help us run the event.

Our fundraising success  allows us to give out charitable grants to both local and international organizations. 100% of the profits goes to charities.


All funds raised at LobsterFest are donated to local and international charities. Giving to the Westport Rotary Club is “one-stop shopping”. Donations support a wide range of both local non-profit organizations and many international humanitarian projects. The Westport Rotary Club Charitable and International Giving Committees vet each grant application determining suitability and the greatest levels of need.

We channel our commitment to service through five avenues, which are the foundation of club activity.


A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.

Vocational Service

Rotarians work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.

Community Service

We find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.

International Service

We promote peace & understanding globally by sponsoring or volunteering on projects around the world.


Rotarians work to empower young people through leadership development programs, encouraging the next generation of leaders.
