Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival

The Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival is one of the most delicious festivals out there. This festival is hosted by chef-restauranteur Ford Fry, who invites chefs, mixologists, and local farmers to work together to create tomato-based goodies. This year’s event will be on July 15 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Westside Provisions District. General admission tickets cost $75, and VIP tickets are $150.

Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival

It doesn’t get sweeter than this. The Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival will be July 28 at Piedmont Park. This family-friendly festival is free to enter and has an unbelievable amount of activities. Join the ice cream eating contest to show your kids you know how to chow down, and then take part in one of the exercise routines to work off those extra calories. You can also enjoy a hula-hoop competition and more.

This festival is about two things. Eating and burning off the calories. Expect to have lots of laughs and tons of fun.
