Get a ‘Taste’ of Sag Harbor at HarborFest

At Sag HarborFest this weekend, you can get a taste of Sag Harbor Village, both literally and figuratively.

Local restaurants and East End breweries and vineyards will be serving their fare on the Long Wharf and at special events.

A weekend of fun kicks off Friday with the HarborFest Fiesta at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, featuring tacos, chips and salsa, and guacamole by the Montaco food truck. Montauk Brewing Company will pour draft beer and Channing Daughters provides the wine.

DJ Mister Lama will spin, and there will be an “adventure area” for the kids. All proceeds from the Fiesta go toward restoring the home of the museum, the Benjamin Huntting House. Tickets are $50 for adults and $12.50 for kids in advance by calling 631-725-0770. At the door, admission is $75 for adults and $20 for kids 16 and younger.

“Taste of Sag Harbor,” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday on the Long Wharf, will include Page at 63 Main, The Golden Pear, Bay Burger and Muse in the Harbor.  North Fork Food Works, Sweet ‘Tauk Lemonade, Multi Aquaculture Systems, G&L Gyro, Dough Gluten-Free Baking, Gula Gula, Silver Spoon and Hormans Pickles will also be on the Long Wharf, as well as Sag Harbor Scouts with hot dogs and soda. Walk up and down Main Street for more food during sidewalk sales, also from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you really want to stuff your face, sign up for the lobster roll eating contest Sunday at 4 p.m., sponsored by Bay Burger. Last year’s winner, Emory Fiveash, consumed four-and-a-half lobster rolls in five minutes, according to the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

For the freshest local produce and catches, don’t miss the farmers market on Bay Street Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Among the items for sale will be vegetables, cheeses, oysters, clams, mushrooms, and bread and pastries.
