The Festival

A Taste of Portland's Creative Economy

With a main stage for music, a central table with a food competition, and a large marketplace where you can interact with local chefs, brewers, and artists, The Portland Food Launch & Festival will be a true testament to the word "Festival". Doors open at 5pm.

Interactive Activities

The Market

We've recruited some of Maine's top food producers and artists to be present at the market. Think "farmers' market on steroids" to get a better sense of what's in store.


The Main Stage

What is a festival without music? We're putting together a line up of some great local talent with our partner, Portland House of Music. We'll post some more details shortly.
