The 2016 Tomato Art Fest parade.

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.
