The Tomato Is Coming, The Tomato Is Coming

| August 25, 2011, 12:11 PM | 1 Comment

Homestead Gardens Tomato Festival 2011There are just a few days left until the Third Annual Annapolis Tomato Festival and Chesapeake Chili Cook-off at Homestead Gardens in Davidonsville, Md., on Saturday, August 27, from 12pm to 6pm.

There are still a few slots left for contestants in The Chesapeake Chili Cook-Off, Salsa Contest and Ledo Pizza-Eating Contest. The entry fee to the Chesapeake Chili Cook-Off is $25, and is open to individuals, restaurants and organizations to compete for the top prize of $1,000, as well as more than $250 in gift cards to local businesses and the coveted People’s Choice Chili Trophy. The $10 fee for entering the Salsa Competition applies to either individuals or restaurants/caterers, which will be each judged in separate categories. The Ledo Pizza Eating Contest is also free to all participants.

This family-friendly event features live music by celebrated local blues artists Andy Poxon and The Sly 45 Trio. Samples of fresh tomatoes, salsa, and chili are included in the price of a ticket, and additional food and beverages such as pizza and pork BBQ are available for purchase.

Individual tickets are $10, and family tickets for up to four people are $25, with children under 10 admitted free of charge, and the event will take place in rain or shine. A portion of the profits from the Tomato Festival and Chili Cook-off will go to support Save the Coconuts, an Annapolis-based nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness to fight breast cancer and make life easier for those living with the disease.

Tickets are available at Homestead Gardens’ Customer Service Desk, their Web site, or by calling 410-798-5000. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the gate. More information, including a complete schedule of events and contest entry forms, is available online at homesteadgardens.com.
