More Information

This year, Dublin’s favourite Urban Farm and Gardens, Airfield Estate, will play host to the two-day festival, where there’ll be no tomato shortages and plenty of fun to be had with tips aplenty from tomato growing enthusiasts and experts alike. Celebrating its 10th birthday this unique festival which champions the culture and diversity of tomatoes will have a specific focus on taste for its residence in Airfield on the weekend of August 27th & 28th 2022.

As was the intention of its founder Nicky Kyle, this festival will continue to celebrate the delicious and diverse fruit with a jaw dropping display of over 100 tomato varieties. Community involvement is key to creating this display and there are over 60 tomato growers from across the country growing tomatoes for the festival!

Growers who contribute tomatoes to the display will be automatically entered into the tomato competition with prizes awarded for several categories including the much-coveted title of “ugliest” tomato. This visually stimulating display will accompany informative talks, tomato seed saving demonstrations, behind the scenes tomato growing tours and the all-important tomato taste test.

Whether you are a rookie gardener or a tomato grower this festival is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Totally Terrific Tomato and ultimately will help you to get to know your tomatoes better. There will also be a series of talks and events throughout the two-day event with more to be confirmed.

The festival flow is as follows:
On both days, throughout the day:

Tomato Taste Trial. Festival goers will be asked to vote for the favourite of four cherry varieties of tomatoes (while stocks last!)

Incredible tomato displays on view and definitely a colourful sight to behold.
