Attraction details
Owner description: One of the most photographed attractions in New Brunswick, i.e. Shediac’s Giant Lobster, is ageing gracefully, even very gracefully, and we plan to celebrate its 25th anniversary in style this year (2015). This work of art measuring 11 metres long, 5 metres in width, 5 metres high and weighing nearly 90 tons saw the light of day thanks to an initiative launched by the Shediac Rotary Club. The Town and the Rotary Club will therefore work together to mark the quarter century of existence of this work of art sculpted by the artist Winston Bronnum. For more information on the festivities marking the 25th anniversary, please visit the Town of Shediac’s website.

“Biggest best lobster ever!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Shediac is famous for lobster, especially when you have the biggest lobster statue in the world.The seafood in the shediac area is the best. There are many places to buy fresh lobster and restaurants as well. don't foreget to go to the beachs in the shediac area because they are the bestvin Canada.

“Does exactly what it says on the tin.”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Quite possibly the best giant lobster monument I've ever seen out of all the one I've seen. Well worth a visit for any fan of lobsters, giants or giant lobsters.
