The Blue Hill Peninsula Fall Festival
The the 9th Annual Fall Festival will begin on Friday, October 10th, and last until Sunday, October 19th. During the week long festival, we celebrate the diversity and creativity of our area's hospitality industry, the farmers who provide us with the harvest from their land, and the fishermen who bring their catches to our markets. Local chefs compose special menus, "From Farm to Table", featuring the wealth of produce the harvest brings, and fresh seafood from our fishermen's daily catch. Many of these dinners also include wine and beer tastings, introducing latest tastes created by our micro breweries.
On Sunday, October 12th, the Chamber's signature event , "A Taste of the Peninsula", will again be held at Mainescape Garden Shop on South Street in Blue Hill. Businesses and farms from all corners of the Peninsula, Deer Isle and Isle au Haut offer samples prepared by local chefs, with wine and beer tastings, a Pie or Chowder contest, local farm products and much more. On Saturday, October 18th, the town of Castine will hold it's 1st Annual Pumpkin Festival.
