Charlotte: Homegrown Tomato Festival
What: At this festival, eat tomato sandwiches, sample entries in the Best Homegrown Tomato contest, and try tomato ice cream. (It’s delicious. Really.) Money may mean nothing when it comes to true love, but for $10, it’ll get you white bread, tomato slices, and Duke’s mayonnaise. And that’s pretty close.
When: July 27, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Neighborhood Theatre, 511 East 36th Street, Charlotte, NC 28205
