Harvest on the Harbor

The Festival appeals to foodies of all kinds, offering a taste and sip for every appetite

Harvest on the Harbor™ is Portland, Maine’s annual food & spirits festival featuring a delicious, diverse and engaging line up of events. The event curates experiences and partnerships that hope to appeal to foodies of all kinds, offering a taste (and sip) for every appetite. The mission is to help show the diversity of the local food and drink scene, foster an inclusive community of passionate food & drink lovers and to give back to our community through this multi-day celebration.


In October of every year, Portland is transformed into a gastronomic extravaganza where food enthusiasts, food tourists, and food explorers from around the world toast Maine culinary arts. They do so at Harvest on the Harbor, Maine's Food + Wine Festival, Portland’s annual celebration of exceptional food, beer, wine, and spirits from Maine and around the world. The much-anticipated festival brings award-winning chefs, epicurean presentations, and live entertainment together to showcase what Maine is renowned for – delectably delicious culinary creations from Maine’s top chefs.

Competitions, Demos, and a variety of vendors - multiple events happening all week  

The 2018 festival brought two new venues for attendees to enjoy. The majority of our events took place under a spacious festival tent on Fore River and Sunday's Market on the Harbor was held at Thompson's Point.

The popular Lobster Chef of the Year returned for 2018. There can be only one champion and you are the judge at this Maine lobster feast.

Other new events included the Oyster Fest. Attendees indulged in delicious Maine oysters, met the farmers, sampled amazing mignonettes and discovered the Maine Oyster Company.

So eat, drink and enjoy – and get your tickets to the Maine's premier food and wine festival early.
