Midwest Tomato Fest


Jul 13, 2013
02:00 PM until 07:00 PM


The raucous, gooey, tomatoey fun is back for a third year! The Midwest Tomato Fest, occupying a square-block area in downtown Minneapolis, is the nation’s largest tomato-toss event, and this year it’s bigger and wilder than ever. Music from the new tomato-themed stage will feature Blueprint, Twin Cities junk band; DJ Zeke Thomas; and other locals, before the 6 p.m. official tomato flinging gets underway. A beer garden, sponsored by Grain Belt, will feature a variety of fair foods and cold brews.

Tattoos, t-shirts, a new aftermath shower tunnel, and thousands more pounds of tomatoes make this Tomato Fest better than ever. Be part of this wild community celebration, and do good with bad tomatoes, with a portion of the proceeds going back into anti-hunger campaigns in Minnesota.


$20, $25 after the first 4,000 tickets sold.
