Do you like a good Maine oyster? Then this is an event you’ll want to buy tickets for early! Find out why some believe Maine has the best oysters in the world! This Harvest on the Harbor event takes place at O’Maine Studious, a great little space filled with oyster farmers. Sip Maine oysters while listening to music and having a good time. Get tickets now – they will NOT be sold at the door! There are two sessions on Saturday, October 29.

In years past, this has been a sit-down meal. Not this year. You’ll be able to graze at nine lobster stations and meet the chefs and staff of each competing restaurant. Once everything has been tasted, it’s time to vote for the favorite. There will be selections from the public and selections judged by professionals. The winners will be announced that evening. This, and all events at Harvest on the Harbor are 21+. Your lobster ticket includes all food and beverages. Get rid Thursday, October 27 – because you’re busy!
