Dumping Day 2019

Event Date Update: Dumping Day has been officially re-scheduled for Tuesday November 26th. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates.

Schedule of Events:

  • 5:00am - Celebrations at Cape Forchu begin with coffee, tea and light snacks
  • 5:30am - Live broadcast by CJLS from Cape Forchu
  • 7:00am - Boats leave the wharves to sail past Cape Forchu and set their traps.

Join hundreds of local residents at 5:00 am (yes, we know it’s early!) as they celebrate the start of the season of Canada’s largest lobster fishery. Bring your flashlights and be part of a community wishing “safe travels and good luck” to the hundreds of boats heading out to rich fishing grounds.

Thank you to our partners at Scotiabank who will be onsite giving out coffee, hot chocolate, baked goods and treat bags.
