CELEBRATING EIGHT YEARS
Welcome to our eighth annual Harvest on the Harbor, the Convention + Visitors Bureau's toast to Maine’s culinary arts. This year’s event promises to bring even more of what Maine is renowned for - delectably delicious culinary creations from Maine’s top chefs and producers who take pride in presenting products that are locally grown and responsibly harvested.
The harvest season is a very special time on the coast of Maine and we invite you to enjoy an amazing array of food and beverage tastings, educational sessions, and some fun and entertaining surprises - all of which are designed to wow you!
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
We’re often asked what charitable organization benefits from the proceeds of Harvest on the Harbor. We have chosen to direct our financial contributions toward hospitality and culinary scholarships in support of our next generation of tourism employees and aspiring chefs. In addition to awarding scholarship funds to deserving students, we offer them opportunities to actively participate in all aspects of the festival from food prep and serving to cooking demonstrations and event management.
