SEAWEED WEEK: A FOOD + DRINK CELEBRATION OF MAINE’S KELP HARVEST, US
April 24 @ 8:00 am - May 2 @ 5:00 pm CEST
A Food + Drink Festival, Celebrating Maine’s Kelp Harvest, Spring 2020, PORTLAND & MAINE, US
North America’s first-ever seaweed harvest festival will return for a second year April 24–May 2, 2020, in Portland and elsewhere in Maine. By featuring seaweed front and center on menus at more than 60 top restaurants, bars, breweries and distilleries, Seaweed Week raises awareness and demand for this delicious, nutrient-dense, remarkably sustainable food that supports Maine’s working waterfront jobs.
Recently chosen as Bon Apetit’s Food City of the Year, Portland is a national foodie destination. Seaweed Week is a way to highlight the businesses already championing seaweed, as well as to get others innovating with seagreens.
Other Seaweed Week events will include tours of a kelp farm in Casco Bay, cooking demos, talks and a makers market. The 2019 event was covered by Martha Stewart, Forbes, Heritage Radio Network and others – and we’re working on a bigger event this year!
