La Tomatina 2019 is Spanish for Effin’ fun! Thousands of people stream to Buñol and cram into the narrow streets like, well, like squished tomatoes. Some people try to climb a greasy pole to reach a succulent leg of pork, and then the cannons fire and the tomato trucks come. Once the trucks have jammed their way through the crowd and unloaded their tons of soppy tomatoes, the streets go blurry, tomatoes are flung and friendships are founded and toppled in this epic battle.
When the madness is over, we’ll rinse off and head back to our glorious camp by the beach. We’ll spend the afternoon swimming in the sea and drinking unlimited beer and sangria. As Official La Tomatina festival partners, we’ll party the night away at the Official La Tomatina After-party!
Get pulpy and saucy at one of the ‘must do’ European festivals, and definitely one of Stoke’s faves. It’s the biggest food fight of the year, but when you’re not scampering about in the pulpy goodness you can chill by the pool, relax on the beach or dance up a storm in Valencia.
Whether you ride with us from Barcelona, San Sebastian, Ibiza or Valencia, or meeting us there; you are guaranteed to have the time of your life at this incredible festival.
