Fry is chef and managing partner of JCT. Kitchen & Bar, King + Duke, no. 246, St. Cecilia, Superica, The
El Felix, The Optimist, and the soon-to-open Marcel: The European-style steakhouse opens in the weeks
leading up to the festival, and guests can check it out during the Festival as the restaurant space
becomes stomping grounds for several chefs and mixologists.
“"I can feel it: This year will be crazier than ever. Plus, rumor has it that Ill Communication will be
blowing it up Brooklyn-style,” said Fry.
Last year’s Festival generated more than $120,000 for The Giving Kitchen and Georgia Organics.
“We love the Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival because it celebrates our agrarian roots. It focuses on
one of the beloved crops Georgia Organics farmers grow so perfectly: the tasty tomato,” Georgia
Organics Executive Director Alice Rolls said. “It’s a day to stimulate our taste buds and toast to the fun
members of the good food community.”
Tickets are $70/person for general admission and $125/person for VIP tickets, which allow for entry at
noon. Tickets are $65/person for Georgia Organics members. Tickets are $60/person with purchase of a
Tomato Fest meal from Garnish & Gather. Please note that the event is rain or shine.
Location: 1198 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30318.
