Welcome to the Los Banos Tomato Festival Events Page for 2013!
The Los Banos Tomato Festival features all kinds of events, contests, and entertainment that will appeal to people of all ages.
NEW EVENT! CFVV’s CrossFit Tomato WOD Massacre!
Lock your doors and shut your windows, CrossFit Valleyview is presenting the First Annual Tomato WOD Massacre in collaboration with the Los Banos Tomato Festival.
We here at CFVV have an idea and a simple one at best, to bring the Town’s Community as well as the CrossFit Community into one collaborative event, to showcase the athleticism of CrossFit Athletes and in turn hopefully instill a passion about health, fitness, and lifestyle with the City of Los Banos and attending visitors.
That being said, we’ll host a CrossFit Competition to push yourselves and see just how well rounded your training is going. Whether you workout at a local affiliated boxes, a big global gym, your school, or your garage! Everyone is encouraged to participate. The Massacre will consist of 3 WODS with the possibility of entering in the final five of your division!

Kids and fun are an integral part of any festival and that is no different for our Tomato Festival. You’ll find activities like the Bobble Lagoon with 7 foot clear “bobbles" where kids will feel like they are walking on water or take a ridw on the tomato train!.
Children ages 2 to 12 years old can hop on the pedal-powered tractors and see how far they can make it as the weight in the sled they are pulling increases. There will be a total of five heats each day and the event is free with gate admission.
The Kid’s Entertainment stage will feature Jump for Joy Music and local dance and singing groups throughout the weekend. From yummy festival foods to the train ride, there will be something for the young and young at heart to enjoy!
