ABOUT THE EVENT:

Toast on the Coast (6th Annual) is an elegant food and wine-lover’s event held at the beautiful Portland’s Ocean Gateway on the Portland waterfront. On Thursday evening, May 11th, meet the chefs behind the finest gourmet food in the Greater Portland area. Sample and choose fine wines from around the world and learn about pairings, wine growing and how to define your own wine palate. 

Proceeds from this event benefit Veterans Count Maine to help provide critical and timely financial assistance when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being..  

In order to maintain an intimate event, tickets are limited and the event has sold out each year, so advance ticket purchases are strongly advised. Admittance to the event begins at 6 PM.

Our wine purveyor is Bow Street Market. 

The space is beautifully decorated by Transformit of Gorham, ME.

This year’s event will feature live music by Andrea Delan!
