Food lovers, set your sights, or better yet....your taste buds on the 2nd Annual Harvest On The Harbor in Portland, Maine, October 22-24. Deemed Maine's Premier Food and Wine Experience, the Harvest will feature three days of delightful foods and flavors for us all to enjoy, as the Greater Portland Convention & Visitors Bureau once again shares the great works of our area restaurants and chefs.
After last years inaugural event, Harvest On The Harbor received recognition by Coastal Living Magazine as one of the Top Ten U.S. Seafood & Wine Festivals. Again, this years event will kick off at the Ocean Gateway Pier with the Grand Tasting on the Harbor Thursday evening at 5pm. Here you can sample some of the finest foods from many of Portland's great restaurants and chefs while enjoying an evening on the oceanfront. Friday will feature Maine's Lobster Chef of the Year Competition, Gourmet on a Budget with Peter Berley, and Italian Cooking and The American Table with Lucinda Scala Quinn.
Saturday will feature the premier experience, the Food & Wine Marketplace from 12-4 at the Ocean Gateway Pier where there will be over 100 exhibitors, including wineries, breweries, distilleries, and food artisans. A Taste of Maine exhibit will feature local wine, cheese, and seafood for food loving visitors, while a Man Cave will allow attendees to sample beers and learn the fine art of grilling.
The food experience will come to a close with Harvest Uncorked, a grand finale celebration at The Landing at Pine Point in Scarborough, featuring more great food and wines to sample, a cash bar, and dancing. Sounds like fun for all!
Over the entire weekend, area restaurants will also have special dishes featured for visitors looking to enjoy something different and delightful, and to showcase the quality and preparation of great food here in Portland.
