LEWISTON — Lisbon Street between Ash and Main streets will shut down for three hours Oct. 21 for seven courses of dining in the street.

Shanna Cox, president of the Lewiston Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, said the hope is that this is the first year of many to come for the Taste The Harvest dinner highlighting local food and chefs.

“We hope this event provides an opportunity for good food and a good time, while helping our local food economy — farmers, meat processors, cheese makers, brewers and vintners — be seen and supported,” Cox said. “This event will put dollars into our local food economy and support our shared work in growing the food and agriculture sector.”

The event also supports the work of the Local Foods, Local Places Action Plan, she said.

Food for the evening is being purchased from 10-plus local farms. Chefs from Sonder + Dram, Boba, Orchid, Cowbell Tap and Grill, Mother India, Break Coffee and The Green Ladle will be serving courses at food stations along Lisbon Street with tables in the street for dining.

Lost Valley Brewing, the Vault, Cellardoor Wines and Fiore Olive Oils and Vinegars are also participating.

As of Tuesday, Cox said about 80 of the 250 tickets for the night were left.
