Harvest Supper -- Chili Night!! @ Fifth Maine Museum

The Fifth Maine Museum’s Harvest Supper will be on Saturday, October 7th, with seatings at 5:30pm and at 7:00pm. We’ll still have two seatings in our dining room, and we’re adding a TO GO option.

We are changing things up for our Harvest Supper this year!

Don’t worry. Your old favorites – delicious food, good friends, and the warm atmosphere of the Fifth Maine Museum dining room – will still be there.

New this year, we’ll be offering a beef chili and a vegan chili, with lots of hot sauce on the side for those who like it spicy!! Salad, cornbread, and apple crisp for dessert make this a delicious meal!

Cider and coffee provided — but you are welcome to BYOB.
