The sixth annual Woodland Tomato Festival will celebrate this ubiquitous local fruit, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in downtown Woodland. To accommodate its growing popularity, the festival moves to Main Street, with activities centered at Heritage Plaza at Second and Main.

Attendees will enjoy tomato and salsa tastings, an expanded children’s activity area, food and craft vendors and live entertainment. Woodland Farmers Market growers also will be there, selling locally grown summer produce.

The “Best Salsa in Town” restaurant competition runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; visitors are asked to taste and vote on salsas prepared by local restaurateurs.

At the Top Tomato Chef Competition, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., local chefs Kate Hutchinson of ciocolat, Shar Katz of Caffé Italia, Jeff Brehmer of Cache Creek Lodge, Justin Severson of Road Trip Bar and Grill, Edna Bohon of Cup and Saucer, John Gamboni of Maria’s Cantina and Patrick Leivo of Fat Cat Café will prepare their favorite tomato-based creations for the judges.

From 9 a.m. to noon, Yolo County Master Gardeners will once again host their free tomato-tasting booth, where visitors can taste and compare some 30 varieties of heirloom and hybrid tomatoes grown by market vendors and Master Gardeners. They’ll also be available to answer gardening questions.

Free live entertainment all day will include the Putah Creek Crawdads, dancing by Ballet Folklorico of Woodland, trick roping by James Barrera, and The No Divas band.

Tickets may be purchased for an obstacle course, bounce houses and a children’s train ride. April Meyer will provide free face painting.
