Mystic Eats 2019 Canceled

August 9, 2019

We regret to inform the community that the 6th annual Mystic Eats Riverside Food Festival has been canceled. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are no longer permitted use of the Seaport Marine property which includes our “beer shed” and live music tented area of the event. 

We have explored other options and were unsuccessful at finding a replacement venue with such short notice that could accommodate the many moving parts that make up our event. 

We appreciate the support from our community of hardworking volunteers, vendors, sponsors and devoted attendees through the years and hope to reimagine the event in time for next summer.  Please know that this decision was not made lightly. 

We realize the importance of the event to the community and merchants. Members have already begun brainstorming to rebrand the event for 2020. We look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s Pirate Invasion and thank you for your understanding of this difficult decision.

Sincerely,

Mystic Eats 2019 Committee
