From 16th annual Tomato Art Fest Website:

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 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. This year, (year fourteen!), the festival is boldly reaching for a world record attempt for the Most People Dressed in Tomato Gear (wish us luck!), and TURBO Nashville, part of the Nashville Civic Design Center 's Reclaiming Public Space initiative, is back this year with their incredible installation of tactical urbanism dedicated to improving our community's built environment. True to our namesake, the ART gets a big part of the tomato spotlight, where Art & Invention showcases over 300 tomato-inspired pieces throughout the weekend.
