The "Totally Terrific Tomato Festival" will take place at Dublin's Airfield Estate next month.
Celebrating its 10th birthday, this festival that champions the culture and diversity of tomatoes will have a specific focus on taste for its residence in Airfield on the weekend of 27 and 28 August 2022.
As was the intention of its founder, Nicky Kyle, this festival will continue to celebrate the diverse fruit with a display of over 100 tomato varieties.

Airfield Estate CEO Claire MacEvilly stated, "Airfield Estate is encouraging people to get to know their food. We are delighted to put the spotlight on tomatoes and host the festival. The catalyst for bringing the festival to Airfield was the desire to carry out a tomato taste test, a sensory experiment whereby Airfield will pitch four distinct tomato varieties against each other to find the tastiest tomato for our garden team to grow. Our four open pollinated contenders have big boots to fill but ultimately with the help of the public the tastiest tomato will reign supreme."
