• April 26 to May 4

    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.
