About Us


The Great Tomato Festival was established in 1989. It is an annual, indoor summer gourmet picnic with a classic fixed menu of Haider's Salsa and Chips, Assorted Tomato Hors d'oeuvres, Smoked Pork Chops, Tomato & Cucumber Salad, Roasted Tomatoes stuffed with Rice, Beer Batter Bread, and Chocolate Brownie. Evening activities include live jazz music, a silent auction, Menu Venue, and tomato displays courtesy of MarketPlace Foods. This is a community fund-raiser, which benefits non-profit organizations, including the Minot Public Library, Taube Museum of Art, Minot Symphony Orchestra.
