April 26, 2019 (All day) to May 4, 2019 (All day)

Join us April 26 - May 4, 2019, and help raise awareness for edible seaweed—a delicious, nutrient-dense, sustainable local food that supports working waterfront jobs.

Coinciding with the annual kelp harvest, Seaweed Week is the nation's first seaweed-focused restaurant week and festival and will feature some of Maine's top chefs, mixologists, brewers and distilleries—each putting native seagreens of all kinds front and center on their menus. 

The heart of the festival is Portland, with events like cooking demos, a Fork Food Lab competition, and tours of a kelp farm in Casco Bay, but there are participating restaurants and events throughout both Maine and New Hampshire.

See the list of participating restaurants here.

Apart from special events, hours will correspond with each restaurant's opening hours.

No tickets are necessary to take part in Seaweed Week; however, some restaurants may require advance reservations. Please contact them directly for questions or details.
