Tomato Fest Set For Downtown Minneapolis In July

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Get ready to toss your tomatoes. The third annual Midwest Tomato Fest will once again take over downtown Minneapolis in July.

Known as the nation’s largest tomato-toss, the event will converge on a square-block area on Portland Avenue and Fourth Street on July 13.

The gates open at 2 p.m. and the event will also feature live music, dunk tanks and a bean bag toss.

A beer garden, sponsored by Grain Belt, will also feature fair foods and brews.

The tomato toss will begin around 6 p.m. with thousands of pounds of tomatoes — even more than the first two years.

New this year? A shower tunnel exit for festival-goers to leave the event in a somewhat cleaner state.
