The festival will highlight locally grown food--the people who grow it, the restaurants who place it on their menus, the markets that sell it, and the people who eat it.
Continuing in the tradition of old-time festival fun, programming for this year’s Tasty Tomato Festival includes a free heirloom tomato tasting, live music, local food + drink vendors, tomato bobbing, and the highly anticipated Tasty Tomato Contest.
The Festival will be held on Saturday, July 20th from 4-9PM. We have again rented City Roots Farm, everyone's favorite outdoor venue, and will have a bigger and better stage for music from a great lineup of Blue Grass Bands.
We will have several local restaurants serving great food and are pleased to announce we will have 4 different brews from Columbia's own Conquest Brewery!
This year Sustainable Midlands, a champion of the region’s sustainable food efforts and festival founder, is partnering with the Rosewood Merchants Association to produce this celebration of the tomato season. The festival will be held at City Roots Urban Farm.
Bring blankets or camp chairs.
