The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

The Greenport Maritime Festival, which runs through Sunday, Sept. 22, involves lots more than the tall ships docking at Mitchell Park Marina. Festivities also include a parade, live music, activities for the kids, local cruises, fireworks —  and, naturally, food.

Here’s how the food-related agenda looks so far: On Saturday and Sunday, an oyster shucking demonstration and exhibit will take place from noon to 6 p.m. in front of Mitchell Park on Front Street. Also, on Saturday, at 2 p.m., BBQ Bill’s will stage a watermelon and rib-eating contest on Front Street.

Local eateries will also be selling food in the food court, situated at Main Street and Central Avenue; local wineries will be selling their wares in Mitchell Park.
