Tomato Art Fest

One event on August 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM
The 17th annual Tomato Art Fest’s 2-day celebration welcomes everyone to East Nashville August 7th and 8th, 2020 for a fun and wacky day of art, music, food, costumes, contests, shopping, kids activities, & more!
Located in Historic East Nashville’s Five Points, this free, costume-encouraged event provides a wildly entertaining, fun-filled day for all types and all-ages. A community builder, Tomato Art Fest has steadily drawn larger crowds with each passing year. Last year an estimated 60,000 came to celebrate this beloved fruit / vegetable and enjoy the day’s memorable festivities.
The essence of Tomato Art Fest can really be found in the array of wacky & hilarious contests, and the Push, Pull & Wear Parade kicking off tomato weekend, full of floats and costumes. True to our namesake, the ART gets a big part of the tomato spotlight, where The Tomato ART Show and Tomato Art Preview Party showcases over 300 tomato-inspired pieces throughout the weekend.
Get in on the Bloody Mary Garden Party for a fun new festival experience!
The local East Nashvillians behind this beloved event strive to improve the festival each year in all areas, while keeping the character of Tomato Art Fest the same familiar fun that Nashville has known and loved for 17 years. Welcoming organic growth (and no shortage of tomato puns!) while sticking close to traditions is something the festival excels at thanks to active community participation.
