The Mary Valley Tomato Festival Committee would like to thank all the volunteers who gave up their valuable time to help make it the success it has been in the last three years. We would also like to thank those who grew tomatoes in their back yards to try to take out the prizes, and subsequently raise the profile of the home grown tomato.
To all the stallholders, we would like to extend a big thank you as well. The Festival itself has been quite unique, with some likening it to an English country fair with all its themed games.
The organization of such an event is a huge commitment for the committee, our amazing volunteers and the entire region.
It is with regret that we have to announce that the Festival will not proceed this year, because at this point in time, we do not have the workforce to take it to the next level. Hopefully this may change in the future, and we would welcome new committee members and volunteers.
Please keep up the good work growing your own tomatoes!
