F6xWYp1R15hVFZbEYTwSjKco-ps_U5zO4Atmbm4ZUvMThe sixth annual Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival will be held at the Goat Farm Arts Center on July 20 from 1-5 p.m. Created by Chef Ford Fry and usually held at his JCT. Kitchen & Bar, the festival has grown so large that a new venue was required.

This year, more than 40 of the South’s top chefs along with 17 skilled mixologists and over 30 farmers are teaming up to create the tastiest tomato concoctions to raise money for Georgia Organics and The Giving Kitchen.

In collaboration with the festival, the Goat Farm experiential design team has created a dynamic visual and aural environment that designed to spark dialogue for those in attendance.

“Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival is such a crazy-fun summer event,” said Fry. “The Georgia tomato tastings and tomato cocktails get more and more inventive each year. I’m excited to see how our participants use the tomatoes at this year’s fest.”

Tickets are $70 per person and only1,900 tickets are available. For tickets and information, visit killertomatofest.tumblr.com.

Last year’s festival brought in approximately $30,000 for Georgia Organics.
