Tomato Festival 2016-198
The Hanover Tomato Festival combines local flavor with family fun with an abundance of free festivities.

Start with our Kick-off Event on Friday evening, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM where adventurous runners and fun-loving friends can participate in the Papa John's 4K Pizza Run and Relay (pre-registration required). There will be DJ music to keep you dancing or just having a great time, while visiting with many of the vendors who will be open for business.

On Saturday, the EJ Wade Foundation provides a full day of entertainment, so be sure to check the schedule and see your favorite band. There is limited shaded seating in the entertainment area.

Our MaterFUN Zone is filled with free children's activities, sure to keep your little one "ripe" with enjoyment!
