The wonderful Tomato Art Fest, in East Nashville, is held annually in celebration and the bringing together of the fruit or is it vegetable, the Tomato. There is always a nice sized assortment of vendors and entertainment.

"The Tomato Art Fest was founded by Meg and Bret MacFadyen, owners of East Nashville’s Art and Invention Gallery. In 2004, the gallery hosted an art show celebrating the tomato in late summer, and planned a few neighborhood events to promote the show. The Tomato Art Fest proved so popular that it immediately turned into an annual, signature event for the hip, urban neighborhood of East Nashville." -tomatoartfest.com/about/
