The 26th Annual Tomato Festival returns August 19 & 20!

Mark your calendar for the 26th Annual Tomato Festival in Downtown Fairfield hosted by the Fairfield Main Street Association, on August 19 and 20.

Enjoy free tomato samples at the tasting tent at Jackson and Texas Streets. Heirloom tomatoes and other fresh produce will be available for purchase, and food vendors will feature a wide variety of tomato-related foods, such as fried green tomatoes, tomato jam, and tomato ice cream!

The Carnival returns and back-to-back music acts will perform on two stages. A complete entertainment schedule is available on the host's website. Both stage areas will host adult beverages for purchase; the Community Stage area features youth performances, tomato eating contests, and award presentations.

And finally, BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND is the VIP Wine, Food, and Brew experience at the beautiful Solano County Events Center. This exclusive event does require a special ticket that is available on the association's website.

Don't miss the fun!
