Enjoy all there is about Maine food at Harvest on the Harbor each fall in Portland. Restaurants offer special tasting menus, there’s an Oysterfest, a Maine distillers’ happy hour and a grand tasting and culinary marketplace. You can even judge who deserves the title of the Best Maine Lobster Chef of the Year at a special competition. Maine is for lovers. Food lovers.
On October 26-18, Harvest on the Harbor is back for 2023, showcasing premier Maine distillers, brewers, oyster farmers, and purveyors of outstanding hospitality.
Harvest on the Harbor started in 2007 to create awareness of Portland, Maine’s expanding restaurant and hospitality scene. Over the years, Portland, Maine (AKA Oyster Town!) has been named The Foodiest Small Town in America and the Restaurant City of the Year, with its chefs, brewers, and distillers earning medals from prestigious awards like James Beard, Good Food Foundation, World Beer Cup, and American Distilling Institute. Maine’s culinary scene has been at a gastronomic high tide for many years!
We remain true to our mission of celebrating Maine’s local- and independently-owned restaurants, the crave-worthy food and drink, and everything else that attracts culinary travelers.
Harvest on the Harbor brings us together for unique experiences encompassing Maine’s food culture. Most importantly, our events create special opportunities to meet the hardworking people who make it all possible.
