Stefanie Manning and Gabrielle Garofalo are partners in S&G, LLC, the new holding company for Harvest on the Harbor. Their partnership began over twenty years ago when they started working together at Newsweek magazine in New York City. Since then they have remained business colleagues and friends with a passion for marketing, events, and all things culinary. In 2010, when working together on a multi-day event for O, The Oprah Magazine, they decided to put our talents and resources together to create their own business. In 2016 that was realized with the purchase of Harvest on the Harbor from the Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau, who created the event in 2008. They are honored to have the opportunity to take this brand to the next level. Their vision for Harvest on the Harbor goes well beyond a multi-day food and drink festival. Their mission is to use this event to celebrate everything about the food and drink culture in Maine and to have a lasting and residual impact on the Maine food economy.
