Helping Food Pantries Feed People

Since its inception in 1985, TomatoFest has raised over $300,000 and collected more than 13,000 canned goods to help feed the hungry through donations to participating area food pantries.

All food pantries receiving donations from TomatoFest 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 support truly affects their lives.

The first "festival", only a few hours long on a Sunday afternoon, was created to bring the community together and provide a public venue for not-for-profit organizations. A few hundred people turned out, and when all was said and done a small profit was realized. People from all over Central New York come to enjoy the great food, music, crafts, and entertainment for the whole family. The name TomatoFest was selected because the festival is held at the end of the tomato season, and the thought of canning or "putting up" the harvest reflected the support of local food agencies.

A volunteer Board of Directors provides their services throughout the year, striving to make each festival a memorable event for everyone who attends. This year's festival will be fresh and better than ever so make plans to bring your friends and family to a fun-filled weekend at the 33rd annual TomatoFest, on September 7th and 8th, in downtown Auburn, NY.
