EVENT DETAILS

Farm to Table Al Fresco Dinner
Gather amongst the redwoods with friends as the sun sets for a farm fresh dinner. Your palette will be delighted as you indulge in our full tomato menu, prepared by Talula Bay Catering, and wines compliments of Joseph George Fine Wines.

Tomato & Wine Pairing
Notable Los Gatos restaurants will create their favorite tomato bites and pair them with wines from the Santa Cruz Appellation. Explore how the tomato can indeed stand tall with a sip of wine.

Live Music
Feel the energy as Dirty Cello, led by vivacious cross-over cellist Rebecca Roudman and Carolina Special, entertain you with their down-home, electric Blue Grass Music in the park. We promise your feet won’t stop moving.

Bloody Mary Competition
Taste and compare Bloody Mary’s prepared by our famous Los Gatos Mixologists. Competition is tough and bragging rights are pending.

1956 Dodge Tomatr Truck
Get a feel for the Valley of the Hearts Delight when you see the bed of our Tomatr truck stacked high with over 800 Heirloom Tomatoes.

Face Painting
Solanum lycopersicum not only tastes good but looks good. Personally, select your tomato design to proudly wear throughout the day.

Live Auction
If you are one of the al fresco dinner guests you will have an opportunity to bid on unique, one of a kind items, perhaps it’s a yacht sailing the Santa Cruz coastline at sunset or a helicopter trip over the Las Vegas skyline. What it won’t be is boring!

Guinness World Records
Bring your camera and join us as we break the Guinness World Records for most Heirloom Tomato varietals in one location. Currently, the record is held by Lycored, set in 2015 in Time Square, but not for long!
