The 2014 Maine Seaweed Festival is happening this weekend at the SMCC campus in South Portland, Me! The event is free and open to the public. Following the event there will be a ticketed “Sustainable Seafood Celebration.” This festival is a fantastic way to introduce and educate the community to an emerging popular food that many have never tried before!
The main goal of the festival is to raise awareness and educate the public on the positive impact that Maine macroalgae is playing in the food culture and especially the local Maine food culture. This food is improving agriculture and aquaculture industries! The festival will feature many different ways to experience the food through food, art, children’s activities, speakers, music and more!
The event runs from 11:am- 5:pm on Saturday August 30, 2014. Followed directly by a ticketed dinner.
Location- Southern Maine Community College-2 Fort Road , South Portland, Maine
