Homegrown Tomato Festival

Tomato Celebration

Celebrating Tomatoes

This year’s Homegrown Tomato Festival is the place to be this July 28th. The festival celebrates everything tomato, ranging from crowning the best tomato grower to eating tomato sandwiches. The Homegrown Tomato Festival will take place at the NoDa Brewing Company. The local festival allows tomato lovers to celebrate as they please, with live music and entertainment keeping the event lively. Two contests, the Best Tomato Grower and Best Tomato Themed Cocktail, pit tomato lovers against one another in the quest for a crown.

Homegrown Tomato Festival Food

Tomato sandwiches, a hot commodity, will be in full supply at the event. The sandwiches feature locally grown tomatoes of all kinds, shapes, and sizes. The produce is grown by local growers and small farms. The Bulb will run this year’s tomato sandwich booth. The Bulb focuses on providing the local area with access to food sources and health and wellness education. To provide access to food sources, The Bulb hosts pop-up markets with produce provided by local farmers and culinary classes. Proceeds from the tomato sandwich booth will be split between 100 Gardens and The Bulb.

100 Gardens Charity

Proceeds from other attractions will benefit 100 Gardens, a charity that builds aquaponics labs and develops curriculum in local schools. The Homegrown Tomato Festival takes place on July 28th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $10 in Charlotte, NC. If you need a vehicle to get you to this event in style, consider one of our models from Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet.

Benefits of Traveling in a Chevy Cruze

Get Ready For Fun In the Chevy Cruze

If you’re looking for the perfect new vehicle, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn just how versatile the compact car segment can be. The Chevy Cruze is the best of its kind, and fits perfectly with many different lifestyles. Here are our five favorite benefits of driving a Chevy Cruze from Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet.

Fuel Efficiency

Whether you opt for the sedan or the first-ever hatchback Chevy Cruze, you’ll find that this tiny car sips the gas. At best, the Cruze gets up to 40 mpg highway*, allowing you to spend less time at the gas pump and more time on the road.

Cargo Space

Despite its compact size, there’s plenty of space inside of the Cruze for cargo and passengers. Versatile seating makes room for up to 47.2 cu. ft. of cargo in the hatchback model.

Chevy Cruze Safety

The Chevy Cruze is full of proactive and reactive safety features, including available driver assist technologies and 10 standard airbags.

Intelligent Tech

You’ll have a hard time finding the latest technology in most compact cars. But in the Chevy Cruze, the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch color touch screen is the standard. Add to that smartphone compatibility and available Wi-Fi, and the Cruze is as good as an office away from home.

Diesel Option

The Chevy Cruze is full of surprises, the latest one being the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan. The 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine gets up to 52 mpg highway* making it the most efficient non-hybrid option in the country.
