In addition, the festival features:
• Great food (fried green tomatoes, BLTs, pizzas, tomato sandwiches, tomato biscuits and more);
• Live music by local bands
• A magician and games
• Arts, crafts and foods from regional artists and farmers
• And the TomatOlympics, a series of tomato-themed challenges along our crazy obstacle course. (Just for the fun of it, kids get a chance to throw squishy tomatoes at the Human Tomato Target.)

This year’s festival is being presented by Red Sun Farms, a leader in the true greenhouse vegetable industry, owning and operating farms in all three NAFTA countries: Canada, Mexico and the United States including nearby Dublin.

The EastMont Tomato Festival is a program of Mountain Valley Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to enhance the quality of life in eastern Montgomery County, Virginia.
