Harvest on the Harbor is back for 2023, showcasing premier Maine distillers, brewers, oyster farmers, and purveyors of outstanding hospitality. Since 2007, this festival has delivered unforgettable culinary experiences. Join us from Thursday to Saturday, October 26-28, for our Feature Events at O’Maine Studios. More events and details will be added, and this website will be continually updated leading up to the event, so check back often and share Harvest on the Harbor with your food- and drink-minded friends.


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. We are committed to spotlighting the incredible work of local organizations through creative partnerships.

Lastly, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the chefs, makers, suppliers, volunteers, and sponsors this year and every year. Your belief in the power of Harvest on the Harbor is invaluable. Thank you all for your support!
