Why We Celebrate
Harvest on the Harbor Festival was started in 2007 with the mission of giving Portland, Maine hotels and restaurants a boost during a slower time of year. While Portland has dramatically changed, the Festival has stayed true to its mission of boosting business by celebrating crave worthy cuisine.
The Festival brings people together for unique experiences that encompass Portland’s culinary culture. Maybe most importantly, the Festival exists to create special opportunities to meet the hardworking people who make it all possible.
Additionally we are committed to supporting local organizations through fundraising. For 2018 the Festival is proud to be supporting: Maine Farmland Trust, Maine Aquaculture Association and SMCC Culinary Arts Program.
Finally a sincere thank you to the thousands of people who repeat the Harvest on the Harbor Festival experience each year. We can not do this without you.
