What better way to celebrate Hanover County's favorite fruit than at the county's largest outdoor festival?!? The Hanover Tomato Festival, presented by Black Creek Vol. Fire Dept., The Mechanicsville Local, The Herald Progress and Hanover County Parks and Recreation, puts the Hanover Tomato on display. Get an early start with Tomato-Palooza on Friday, 7/13 with tomato-tastings, live music, vendors, contests, the incredibly fun Papa John's 4K pizza run & relay, all going on while a variety of food trucks are serving up their best Hanover Tomato cuisine. On Saturday, 7/14 enjoy all day live music, yummy tomato delights, over 150 artisan & business vendors, the MaterFUN zone (designed for children 12 & under), Bow-Wow Beach (cooling station for pets) and of course Hanover Tomatoes.
