Tomato Art Fest 2017 Nashville TN – August 11th and 12th 2017
Tomato Art Fest returns August 11th and 12th, 2017 for the 14th year! 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. In 2016, an estimated 60,000 came to celebrate this beloved fruit / vegetable and enjoy the day’s memorable festivities.
The Fest was founded by Meg and Bret MacFadyen, owners of East Nashville’s Art and Invention Gallery. In 2004, the gallery hosted an art show celebrating the tomato in late summer, and planned a few neighborhood events to promote the show. The Tomato Art Fest proved so popular that it immediately turned into an annual, signature event for the hip, urban neighborhood of East Nashville.

The 14th annual Tomato Art Fest is set for August 12, 2017. Last year the festival drew nearly 50,000 people to East Nashville, and we always seem to always garner plenty of national attention along with bringing in the locals.
We hope that you will be compelled to create tomato-inspired artwork to fill the walls of our gallery and add another level of greatness to this already remarkable event.
