VALE – Revitalize Ontario had a Tater Tot booth at the Malheur County Fair to promote the upcoming 2020 Tater Tot Festival, and they just couldn’t keep up with demand. 

Each day, fairgoers could swing by, mingle and grab a few free Tater Tots, as well as fill out a survey about what kinds of things they hope to see at next year’s festival.

The festival will honor the Grigg Brothers, Nephi and Golden, the founders of the frozen food processing company Ore-Ida and the inventors of the Tater Tot.

Kraft Heinz is spearheading the marketing for the festival.
