Tomato Romp 2019 is Saturday, September 7th!

On Saturday, September 7th, The East Side will host its 13th annual Tomato Romp!

Tomato Romp is Wisconsin’s only tomato festival, most known for its Rotten Tomato Fight For Hunger. The East Side was the first in North America to create a celebration of the tomato and tomato fight inspired by La Tomatina Fight in Spain. 13 years later it's now replicated in cities across America. 8,000 pounds of rotten tomatoes are donated by Maglio Companies for the fight, with the fight proceeds donated to Riverwest Food Pantry.

The day kicks off with a Bloody Mary Challenge from 11am-3pm. Participating bars compete for your vote for the best Bloody Mary mix. At 3:30, a parade will lead Tomato Fight participants through the East Side to the cage where you prepare to throw 8,000 pounds of rotten tomatoes at each other! Even if you don't want to get messy for hunger, the fight is FREE (and hilarious!) to watch! 

TICKETS can be purchased for the Romp and the Bloody Mary Challenge NOW! Early pricing ends 9/5. Click here!
