The Los Banos Tomato Festival celebration was originally held from 1987 to 1994 and brought thousands of festival-goers to the Los Banos Fairgrounds. The Los Banos Chamber has brought the tradition back and each year it gets bigger than ever.
The Los Banos Tomato Festival usually features celebrity chef appearances, BBQ contests, Bloody Mary’s, salsa and pasta sauce contests, as well as fair foods including healthy and tomato-centric recipes.
Local performers as well as professional musicians and entertainers perform on the fairground's stages. Many children's activities are available for the young.
