(WSYR-TV) — It’s the 37th annual TomatoFest here in Central New York. The goal is to gather as much money and canned food as possible for local food pantries.

Competing this year are the Auburn Community Hospital against the Cayuga County Sheriff and Auburn police for the canned food donation competition.

Local food vendors will be offering their products available for purchase at the event. There will also be an evening concert at 7pm, and tickets are available for $20. All revenue and donations support food pantries.

A festival in California inspired the celebration to come to Central New York, and now it’s almost 40 years old.
