Harvest on the Harbor is Maine’s premiere, annual food and wine festival, offering you the opportunity to eat and drink exceptional food, beer, wine, and spirits along with award-winning chefs, presentations, and live entertainment – all on Portland’s waterfront: October 21st through the 25th, 2015!
A Portland fall tradition, the 8th annual Harvest On The Harbor is a five-day event that brings local chefs and vineyards from around the US to Portland to showcase their talents and products – not to mention all the gastronomes, gourmands, and epicures like yourself who come to sip, sup, and sigh over all the offerings.
This year’s Harvest On The Harbor will feature many brand new events, along with the return of so many favorites. A Moonlight Gala kicks off this year’s festival with live, Charleston-style music and dancing, gourmet cuisine, and wine pairings – all outside of Portland at The Landing at Pine Point in Scarborough, with transportation to an d from Portland as part of the ticket price!
