The 2016 Grainger County Tomato Festival

The Grainger County Tomato Festival was organized in 1992 to promote Grainger County Tomatoes. Our mission is to promote all Grainger County agricultural products, specifically the Grainger County Tomato, and to promote the many local artists and craftsmen we have in our area. Over the years we have added a number of special events making the festival one of the largest free festivals in East Tennessee. The festival is always the last full weekend in July. Starting on Thursday July 28th at 6:30 the Festival Street Dance at Rutledge Middle, Be sure to mark your calendars! You don't want to miss it. NEW this year The Grainger County Festival Concert Series kicks off with a FREE concert with the Kentucky Head Hunters at the Football Field on Saturday night the 30th. Plan to be here for the World Famous Tomato Wars both Saturday & Sunday. Click on the full schedule for full details and times
