By popular demand, this year will feature an expanded wine, brewery, and distillery sampling area, live music, cooking demonstrations, educational seminars, and the coveted Dunnett’s Stove Drawing.
Spectra Venue Management’s Joe Imbriaco, Cross Insurance Center General Manager, stated “Going into our fifth year hosting the Maine Harvest Festival, we are so proud of how the festival has grown, not just in scale but in reputation. Not only are we recognized by our community through their attendance and support, but it is a great sentiment being nominated as a contender for the Top 10 best Fall Harvest Festivals in the country. The festival has its own unique Maine brand and authentic feeling, which I believe has propelled it to being one of the best in the country.”
Festival shopping bags will be provided by St. Joseph Healthcare, but organizers stress the importance of bringing a cooler or a thermal insulated bag/container for transporting temperature-sensitive purchases and/or a large sturdy bag for heavier fragile items.
