Tickets to the fest are available online at www.eastendseaport.org or at the event. They're $12.50 per person in advance, $17.50 at the festival. Each ticket holder may cast one ballot.

Among the participating restaurants are popular Greenport spots including Noah's, First and South, The Frisky Oyster and Claudio's; A Lure of Southold; and A Mano of Mattituck. If you spend $20 or more at a participating restaurant, you'll be entered into a drawing for prizes.

The 2014 competition will take place near 234 Carpenter St., close to the Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. and the Chase Bank branch, from noon to 3 p.m. There will be beer and root beer tastings, too.

The festival benefits the East End Seaport Museum &  Maritime Foundation.
