What is the Lobstah Bake?

Now in its 12th 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 by The Sin Brothers and phenomenal food by Chesapeake Seafood Caterers and Jimmy’s BBQ, guests will be treated to custom cocktails by Aaron Gordon and 13th Street Cocktails,  a performance by Thorncroft’s equestrian drill team, The Mainstreamers, and take part in, or view, or second-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 Second 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. Tailgating packages start at $500.00. Purchase tickets online here.
