It’s Atlanta, it’s July, and it’s tomato season. That can only mean one thing: it’s time for the annual Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival. This highly seasonal food festival put on by the fine folks at Georgia Organics returns to the Westside Urban Market and neighboring Westside Provisions District on Sunday, July 17th. From 1pm-5pm you’ll be able to consume, carouse, and cavort like it’s nobody’s business.
For those unfamiliar with said event, here’s the lowdown. Basically, a bunch of chefs, farmers, and mixologists get together and put out their best tomato inspired food and drink. Think of it as the most kid appropriate orgy you will find.
It’s a get it while you can type of event, so I suggest you arrive early and buy your tickets even earlier. Tickets currently stand at $60 for non-members of GO and $55 for those that do subscribe. After July 1st, all tickets are $70.
Though prices have gone up since last year, this festival, in my humble and honest opinion, is the best festival in town, bar none. If that isn’t enough to wet your whistle, check out my recap of last year’s event and/or the Flickr set!
