Happy Tomato Fest...ish 2020 everyone! For those of y'all who aren't familiar, Tomato Art Fest is a wonderfully wacky East Nashville festival celebrating "The Tomato — A Uniter, Not a Divider... Bringing Together Fruits & Vegetables!" (How stinkin' cute is that??)
There are a bunch of fun traditions including a tomato art show, a tomato 5K, a tomato haiku contest, tomato story time, a bloody mary contest, and so much more. We all hoped it'd be safe enough to gather in person, but because of the pandemic, vendors are creating virtual experiences on the Cyberspace Vendor Market and I am so excited Doodle Different gets be part of the lineup!
I encourage you to click through and check out all the vendors the festival is featuring! We're all selling goods, but you can support small businesses with website traffic and social media follows, shares, and engagement too. We do a little happy dance when orders come in and also when we get nice comments :)
Here's my official vendor video:
