Event Time: 9 am to 2 pm
The Second Annual Harvest Festival will be held on October 7th from 9 am to 2 pm at Lincolnville Beach. Sponsored by the Lincolnville Business Group (LBG), "Pickles Preserves and Pies" is an annual harvest-time festival held at the beach to fundraise for Lincolnville Scholarships for students proceeding after high school to college, technical school, or professional/trade preparation. Local home cooks, community non-profit groups, and regional Maine product vendors sell all sorts of amazing pickles, jams, jellies, salsas, chutneys, pie fillings and, of course, Maine-made pies.
You are invited to join us to buy or sell! Think Christmas presents for family, school and music teachers, neighbors, your dinner table or to take along to dinner invitations, etc. why take wine when you can bring pickles!? Vendors can enter to win the pickle or preserves "crown" and hold the prized giant pickle for a year until the next fun and yummy competition. Volunteer judges are always welcome!
The event is held at McLaughlin's Shack at Lincolnville Beach along Rt 1 where coffee and pastries are sold throughout the morning by the LBG. Lunch will be available at several nearby LBG-member restaurants. This year a raffle will be held for a Vintage Glass Window donated by Jane Liedtke of Bay Leaf Cottages. Tickets will be on sale at the event. You do not need to be present to win.
