Raising money for food pantries of Cayuga County through a fun-filled, annual community event.

In this 31st year, Tomatofest is committed to continue to support the great work of local food pantries. With our mission in the forefront of our minds we gave great thought and care before deciding to move to downtown Auburn.  The decision with the support of Auburn Downtown BID enables economic advantages while increasing its visibility in the community and providing a venue which will attract a large and diverse audience to the festival.

Your donation is doubled in value because the pantries are affiliated with the Central New York Food Bank.  Every $1 provides an entire meal! Last year 873,148 meals were provided in Cayuga County. Hunger affects parents and children, and your donation truly affects their lives.  Please help TomatoFest’s continual effort to eliminate hunger by becoming a TomatoFest Sponsor.
