Lobstah Bake

What is the Lobstah Bake?

Now in its 13th year, Thorncroft’s Lobstah Bake & BBQ invites our community to join us in support of our riders and the horses who make our mission possible.

Chaired by Craig and Maire Kandravi, this year’s event places a spin on our traditional seated dinner, which has become a staple of the Main Line’s fall calendar.

Guests can choose between a socially distanced and seated table, carry-out dinner, or premium tailgating experience!

In addition to live music and phenomenal food, guests will be treated a performance by Thorncroft’s equestrian drill team, The Mainstreamers, and take part in, or view, or third-annual tailgating competition!

Tailgating Information

At Sponsorship levels of Crusher Claw and above, you and your guests will have the unique opportunity to enjoy the evening from a named, premium tailgate spot! Be sure to reserve your spot while spaces last.

Each tailgate spot will be supplied with a table. Lobstah and BBQ dinners will be delivered to your named area. Please feel free to bring any tents, chairs, and other tailgating accessories you and your guests desire.

And don’t forget those decorations for our Third Annual Tailgate Competition! The most festive location will be crowned tailgate champion and take home the Golden Lobstah.

The Lobstah Bake & BBQ is a rain or shine event.

Carry-Out Information

Returning for our 13th Annual Lobstah Bake & BBQ, is the option to take your Lobstahs & BBQ to go!
