According to our mate Oli Russell-Cowan, Founder of Rad Season, La Tomatina is the undisputed king of food fight festivals in Spain and not to mention one awesome fiesta! After experiencing La Tomatina for the first time this year, Oli encourages anyone who is up for getting very dirty just and pegging tomatoes at their mates, to add La Tomatina to their 2017/2018 European trip bucket list.
The fun happens at the end of August each year, when 30,000 – 40,000 adventurous people make the trip to the ancient town of Buñol to party and ditch tomatoes at each other. A truck carrying 5 tonnes of tomatoes rocks up in the centre of town and it’s every man and women for themselves in one incredible food fight that you will remember forever!
Whats even better is that there are a heap of other fun food festivals coming up in Europe in next year so if you can’t make this one or want to create an epic trip around a number of crazy food fight festivals, there are a heap of options. Rad Season have rated the top 5 food fight festivals to Europe next year and in addition to helping you discover awesome events, Rad Season can also help you book event tickets, accommodation, travel and connect with others to create a trip of a lifetime.
