Flavors of Freeport (6th Annual) Food Festival

January 8, 2013 by Scott Gile

If you enjoy visiting Maine, especially Freeport, and if you love food (and who doesn’t??), you’ll look forward to coming to Freeport in February for the 6th Annual Flavors of Freeport festival.

In the past the Flavors of Freeport festival has featured the Chef’s Signature Series on Friday night, and this year is no different in that respect. The Chef’s Signature Series will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with the venue continuing to be the Freeport Hilton Garden Inn.

Enjoy the flavors from Freeport’s finest chefs and top food artisans, as they present tastes of their best dishes to showcase their culinary skill and style.  Attendees vote on their favorite display and “flavor” and are also entered to win fabulous door prizes!  Will award winning executive chef Christopher Bassett of Azure Cafe take first place again this year?  You be the judge!

In addition, Maine beverage purveyors provide the opportunity to sample local hand crafted beer, wine and spirits.

As in the past, there will be a silent art auction featuring pieces from the Freeport Art & Music Festival during the event to benefit the Freeport Community Services Food Pantry.

During the evening, accompanying the Chef’s Signature Series on Friday (also 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.) will be an Ice Bar. The ice bar will feature a martini luge,  ice sculptures, roaring fires to cozy up to, music with other wonderful beverages to sample.

Bundle up in your warmest winter wear and enjoy a night of festivities outside in February with family and friends. One ticket to the ice bar gains the holder (21 years and older) entrance and one beverage – additional beverage tickets can be purchased on site.

Tickets and information can be found at http://www.freeportusa.com/events/flavors-of-freeport.

A Taste of Freeport

February 22, 2011 by Scott Gile

It’s hard to believe, but the fourth annual Flavors of Freeport is right around the corner!

This year’s event begins Friday, March 25 with the guest favorite, the Chef’s Signature Series. Last year’s event included a silent art auction, plus samples from restaurants, pubs, bed and breakfasts, candy companies, wine distributors, and more!

It is a great exhibit of some of the finest samplings of food you’ll find anywhere – and there is so much of it that you won’t need to go out to dinner!

This year there is a new event on Saturday, March 26, called the Celebrity Waiter Luncheon. A three course luncheon will be prepared and served by the Hilton Garden Inn staff, and service will be provided by local celebrities, who will also keep the diners amused with their humorous back-and-forth banter, pouring water and coffee, and catering to the requests of the guests. Attendees of the luncheon will be encouraged to tip their celebrity waiters based on the level of service and entertainment they are being provided (are they making you laugh so hard you are in tears?). All of this is in good fun, and all celebrity-earned tips will benefit the event’s charities.

Advance tickets are available separately for the Chef’s Signature Series and Celebrity Waiter Luncheon, or buy a combined “Flavors Pack” for a discounted rate. Major credit cards are accepted online. Tickets at the door will be cash only.

Check availability and book now, so you’ll be here for a taste of Freeport!
