No matter how you say it, if you’re a fan of tomatoes, Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival is the place to be this week.

Now in its 56th year, the festival will be held from Aug. 4-6 at Reynoldsburg’s Huber Park, which is located at 1640 Davidson Dr.

The long-standing festival will feature carnival rides, food and drinks vendors, live music and even a pickleball tournament, but where it really sets itself apart is with its unique slate of tomato-themed events.

A tomato contest will be held, where judges will name winners in a variety of categories, including best cherry tomato, tallest tomato vine, most uniquely-shaped tomato and more. 

Visitors will also have chance to participate in the festival’s Tomato Wars, a dodgeball-style contest that uses tomatoes in place of traditional rubber balls. Teams of five will go head to head on Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. You can register your own team here for $25. Registration closes Aug. 3.
