26th Annual Great Tomato Festival

Posted: Updated:

The doors are now open for the 26th Annual Great Tomato Festival in Minot.

Bonnie Campo is live on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds where the Festival is heating up.

In it's first year, The Great Tomato Festival raised just 5 thousand dollars.

In 2013, they raised 50 thousand dollars.

This year the event is expected to see an attendance of one thousand people who will enjoy a variety of tomatoes, famously smoked pork chops, and a silent auction of nearly 300 items.

Nancy Walter says the tastiest part is all the money goes to support local fine arts.

(Nancy Walter, Director, Taube Museum) "Well it definitely helps with our annual budget. We are going to be allocating some of that for upkeep maintenance of the building that we live in. And to also help with our mission, enriching lives through the visual arts and bringing in artists and exhibitions."

If you don't already have your tickets just come to the door and pay the 30 dollars.

The Taube Museum of Art will split the money evenly with The Minot Public Library and The Minot Symphony Orchestra .
