The 3rd Annual ‘The Great Eastern Shore Tomato Festival’, August 23, 2014

News article refering to The Great Eastern Shore Tomato Festival on August 17, 2013 in Vienna, Maryland in Dorchester County.

3rd Annual Tomato Festival

This is the 3rd Annual Tomato Festival and we expect to enjoy local tomatoes and traditional foods along with live musical entertainment!

This year the event will be held on August 23, 2014 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm along the waterfront of Vienna.

Presented by the Dorchester County Historical Society and the Town of Vienna, you may call (410) 228-7953 for more information.

Here we present a couple of videos about past year’s Festival. Oral histories were given, arts and crafts offered for sale and demonstrations given including dance instruction for Salsa, crabbing techniques and competition, and, of course, a tomato fight too!

Live Music

Just out side the Tavern House Inn’s front entry, there is going to be live music! Music will include a variety ‘running from gospel to jazz and then to bluegrass’.

The festival will finish with The Great Tomato Wars (a tomato fight) at 4pm. Apparently there’s a firetruck available at the end of the fight for a high power rinsing to clean you up!
