French Market Creole Tomato Festival

The Creole Tomato Festival has celebrated this unique Louisiana vegetable for over 20 years. The festival is beloved by locals and visitors for its quaint and quirky traditions, such as life-sized tomatoes strolling the grounds handing out tomato shaped fans, and the auctioning off of the first tomatoes of the season to local chefs. Admission: Free.

The event features:

  • Live music
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Creole Tomato Parade
  • Local farmers' market and food and beverage booths
