The MCA is proud to partner with Fork Food Lab on their first annual Portland Food Launch & Festival to take place June 22, 2017 @ Thompson Point, Portland, Maine. The Portland Food Launch and Festival is a one-day event, taking place during Maine Start-up and Create Week, that mixes business development for food entrepreneurs with a food, music, and art festival. In the morning, education and networking opportunities will support the startup and scale-up of businesses, providing the tools necessary for these companies to grow and flourish. In the evening, the focus will shift to a public celebration of food and makers with new product launches, demonstrations, competitions, Maine craft marketplace and music.
The MCA Craft Marketplace will include approximately 20 vendors by invite only in 2017, artists from the greater Portland area are prioritized. In future years we may recruit through a different selection process.
