News & Events: Lobster Fair

Save the date...October 14, 2017
10:00 am- 3:00 pm
Last year we raised over $15,000 for Outreach

Since our first Lobster Fair in 1978, St. Timothy's has shared over 65,000 lobsters with friends and neighbors in the Greenville area. This annual Fall event engages essentially all parishioners in some aspect. All net proceeds are used for support of Parish Outreach programs... $18,000 raised in 2011, as well as $6,000 provided for Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief in 2005.

Put in perspective, we've sold around 40 tons of lobsters, or the equivalent of a couple of school buses...or a humpback whale.

Read on to find opportunities to be involved or just enjoy the day with us at St. Timothy's.

Fresh Maine Lobsters

Delivered fresh from Maine on the day before the Fair, our 1-¼-lb. lobsters are the highlight of the Fair. Order lobsters in advance for live or freshly steamed lobsters at $16 each.

Cooked lobsters are steamed on the premises the day of the Fair by members of the parish. Steamer Meals (whole lobster, with sides of corn on the cob, slaw and fries) are $20. Back this Year: Peel & Eat Shrimp Steamer Meal: 1 lb of shrimp, with sides of corn, slaw and fries) $20. And our food court will have the traditional hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and cold drinks, as well as slaw and other sides if you want to dine under the BigTop on site. Also returning will be an Assortment of fresh potted mums and flats of pansies. Whatever looks best at the nursery will be on hand. First come first served...starting on Friday evening.
