The Goat Farm Arts Center is proud to present chef Ford Fry’s sixth annual JCT. Kitchen & Bar Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival on Sunday, July 20 from 1-5 p.m. This year, more than 50 of the South’s top chefs along with 19 skilled mixologists and over 30 farmers are teaming up to create the tastiest tomato concoctions to raise money for Georgia Organics and The Giving Kitchen.
Because of the astonishing growth and popularity of the event, the number of participants has outgrown the festival’s home of five years, JCT. Kitchen & Bar.
High-profile judges including Garden & Gun deputy editor Dave Mezz, Esquire food and travel correspondent John Mariani and Tasting Table creative director Todd Coleman and Food & Wine associate food editor Ben Mims are choosing the best tasting dish and best tasting cocktail during the event. The festivities will also include food writer, stylist and photographer Angie Mosier and registered dietician, author and food journalist Carolyn O’Neil as co-masters of ceremonies, as well as a live performance from The B-53s and DJ Brian Poust. Special guest David Miller, the actor who played Mason Dixon in the original “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” movie, is returning this year to present the awards to winners.
Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival celebrates its sixth year at a new location, The Goat Farm Arts Center and is the recipient of The Goat Farm’s Arts Investment Package. In collaboration with the festival, the Goat Farm experiential design team has created a dynamic visual and aural environment that will spark thought provoking dialogue for the audience.
