Harvest Party

This event has been cancelled for 2019. Please check back next year.

Live Music, Local Foods, and Traditional Pie Contest!

Bring your family…bring a friend to this free, family-friendly community celebration.  This gathering is the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s gift to the community and features local foods served sizzling hot, live bluegrass music by a local blue grass band, a pie contest, and engaging activities for kids. Special recognition will be made to the many volunteers who work hard to make the land trust so successful every day.

CELT appreciates the generous support of key community sponsors who make this fun-filled evening possible. We are currently seeking sponsors for 2019 — See below!

Calling Pie Bakers of all Ages!  

The traditional Pie Contest is a friendly competition determined by popular vote. Our newest category is for Young Chefs – kids of all ages are invited to bring a baked good they helped make. We’re sure these desserts will be delicious, so all Young Chefs will be recognized with an award sticker.

Other judged categories are:

  • Best Fruit Pie
  • Prettiest Pie
  • Best Chocolate or Cream Pie
  • People’s Choice

Pies are very popular, so please consider entering a pie or two this year! Send your pie entry details to info@capelandtrust.org and bring your pie or Young Chef baked good to the Harvest Party between 3:30 and 4:30. Include your name, your pie or baked good’s name, and a list of ingredients on a note card or piece of paper when you drop off your pie or baked good. Pie bakers and Young Chefs will be recognized at approximately 5:30.

Become a Harvest Party Sponsor

This free, family-friendly community gathering is promoted to the entire Cape Elizabeth community, CELT volunteers, and supporters of the organization through posters, social media, press releases, e-blasts and newsletters. Your support will also be recognized in CELT’s Annual Report published in November. More than 300 people attended in 2018.

Featuring local foods represents CELT’s organizational commitment to working with and supporting local farms and bolstering the local economy.

Because the Harvest Party is being held at a public venue – Fort Williams Park – your sponsorship publicity will extend to the thousands of visitors who visit daily. See the opportunities for partnering with us below.Y
