My Favorite Social Event of the Year is Wednesday August 8th

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

This will be the 6th year I've posted about my absolute favorite Minot ND Social Event, the Great Tomato Festival. This is the 30th year of this fabulous event and I wouldn't miss it for the world. While I'd only rate the food as "very good" the social aspect of it all is off the chart fun.

30th Annual Tomato Festival

Here is a video I took from last years event.

 

The Great Tomato Festival is a benefit event for the Minot Public Library, the Taube Museum of Art, and the Minot Symphony Orchestra. The event keeps growing and last years attendance was well over 1,000. Being my best friend was the Minot Public Library's director for 30 some years I've been a volunteer at the Great Tomato Festival as long as I've known him (and of course I've dragged my wife into it as well by volunteering her labor as well). Truth be told I LOVE serving tables and doing all I can to help out at this event. Hope to see you there next year.

Hi Bob,
I had no idea tomatoes were such a big thing in Minot. I hope the attendance is off the charts this year and you raise lots of money to benefit the various charities!

Hmmm, does a fight break out with people throwing then?

I love tomatoes.  Today my husband and I were debating purchasing some in Hood River, Oregon at a really expensive price on site.  We decided against it as they were over priced for being at the place they were grown.  Hope your festival is very successful!

I LOVE this event Carol Williams . It's just so much fun and I like to see all the people that come in formal attire (about 30% of attendies do) and the fun of the silent auction as well as the "Swing" bands that play through out the event.

No tomato fights yet William Feela and I'd buy you a ticket if you promised to start one... but I'm not going to pay your bail later .

I love fresh tomatoes as well Lynnea Miller but this year it's a real dilemma for me. I've posted about arthritis coming upon me this year and I've been warned that tomatoes aggravate it... so I'm limiting myself to about 3 a day (right off the plant) right now.

Thanks Endre Barath, Jr. . It's an excellent fund raiser for sure and this is one time I don't mind being in a big crowd. I'd love to see them break a new record as well.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - I love, love, love tomatoes! Especially when they are home grown! There is so much you can do with fresh tomatoes. 

Now I think, that's what I'll have for dinner!

I do too Patricia Feager but regretfully they are not agreeing with me very well anymore.
