Event and PP Tour Information

Join PP in Spain on 30 August 2017 for one of the most unbelievable and memorable experiences of your life. La Tomatina is without doubt the wildest and craziest festival in Europe - it is virtually impossible to describe the absolute carnage that follows in the tiny town of Buñol when the tomato lorries arrive - it is something you have to get into the middle of to experience!

Restricted access and ticket to La Tomatina: Entry ticket to Bunol: All PP tours include the new entrance ticket that has been introduced by local authorities to enter Bunol for La Tomatina. La Tomatina has become so much better! First introduced in 2013 it made the whole event so much better, less crowded and more fun. PP Travel, will again in 2017 have official access to entry wristbands required. We will need your passport details to comply with local official rules.

Let the experienced team at PP Travel lead you right into the heart of the action to ensure you get the most of this short, but wild experience. Our fully trained crew will have you completely prepared for the battle - and of most importance - will lead you "past the ham pole" right into the thick of it. While tens of thousands of revelers decent upon Buñol annually, a huge number not informed or not led properly miss out on the action altogether and hardly see an tomato.

That is why choosing who you travel with to La Tomatina is of such importance. The actual awesome but crazy fight lasts just an hour and without proper preparation you can miss it all. Over 1000 people travelled with us to Spain in 2016 and we are proud to say that all were given the opportunity to experience Tomatina to the max. Whether wanting to be in the middle of the carnage or experiencing it a bit more on the sidelines, we are certain all our passengers got the most out this unbelievable event.

Each year, thousands of people missed the action, unfortunately, because they are no fully informed. The new ticket system (wristband) has meant that "Tomato Street" is much less packed, however to get the most out of this very short but crazy event it is very important you choose an experienced, professional tour operator, to make the most of this once in a lifetime event. That is where we, at PP, come to play. Naturally in 2016, none of the hardy PP tomato-goers missed out and we were all right in the thick of things - and those who wanted to be on the outside, were given the best advice how to get the most out of this crazy event.

In 2017, the Bunol city council will for the 5th time, have an entry ticket for all those wanting to go to La Tomatina. This is due to the massive growth of the numbers wanting to attend the festival and the number of entry tickets being released are extremely restricted. Only people with the entry ticket (wrist band) will be allowed into Bunol on that day.
PP Travel will again secure a limited number of entry passes and these are included in the cost of all our La Tomatina tour packages.

PP's La Tomatina tours are not only the best value around; we offer the choice of superb hotels in the best position in Valencia. We include transfers plus free drinks and specials at exclusive pre and post Tomatina parties in this vibrant Spanish port city; transport to and from Bunol plus souvenir t-shirts. But, most of all, we are dedicated to ensuring you get the most out of the wild Battle of the Tomato.

The Tomatina Festival (the Tomato Battle) takes place in Buñol, a small town of approximately 9,000 people, close to Valencia. The event is a one-day, in fact, one morning only happening, that occurs on the last Wednesday in August - the 3oth in 2017. It is short, sharp, crazy and awesome fun. Lorries filled with tomatoes roll in the town square and soon after the festival and the carnage begins.

Our economical 3-day tours are based in excellent hotels in the best position of vibrant city of Valencia, the third largest city in Spain. All are close by the amazing ultra-modern City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias). These awesome buildings, built in a former river bed, are situated ideally halfway between the old town centre and Valencia's chic America's Cup port.

Choose either our 3* hotel option or our superior 4* packages. All include transfers to our superb welcome/pre Tomatina party at the fabulous High Cube bar - right on the America's Cup port.

On the 30th you are transferred to Buñol in executive coaches for La Tomatina and led into the middle of the battle. Post Tomatina join us at the official after party. PP Travel is the only tour operator that includes free entry to the after party (up to 10pm) - it is almost as big as La Tomatina itself. We also include breakfast daily, free wi-fi and Souvenir La Tomatina T-Shirt.

Put your trust in the PP La Tomatina team. We will ensure you get right amongst it all and get the most out of this crazy, amazing experience.

The Tomato Fight
On the Wednesday morning large dump trucks haul the massive bounty of tomatoes into the centre of Buñol, Plaza del Pueblo. What is amazing is how small this area is. The centre of the action is in front of the small town hall in a narrow, typically Spanish street. Tens of thousands of revelers pack into the area from dawn and are entertained before the arrival of tomatoes by the "clamor of the ham pole". A large ham is placed on top of the greased pole and scores form human ladders to try to claim it. Like the battle that follows, it is carnage and it is has been years since anyone has grabbed the elusive ham.

The first trucks appear late morning and squeeze their way down the narrow one-way street into the packed crowd. Local farmers sit on top of the trucks and fire tomatoes (including green ones) at the defenseless crowd. The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of the cannon and the chaos begins around 11.00am. From then on it is a battle that is generally every man and women for themselves. It is not uncommon for it to develop into girls vs guys. Several times throughout the hour trucks come through to re-stock the street with more and more loads of tomatoes.

Lasting only for an hour, the fighting ends and the cannon is fired once more. By this time you are seriously weary and glad it is over. The cleaning process involves the use of fire trucks to spray down the streets, with water provided from a Roman aqueduct. The celebration concludes with the festival of the town's patron saints, San Luis Bertràn, and the Virgin Mary.

PP passengers then spend a few hours recovering and trying to clean themselves before being transferred back to Valencia mid afternoon to get a proper wash down at our 3 and 4 star hotels.

There are, in fact, very few rules at La Tomatina, but these are outlined by the city council:

  • It is compulsory to squash the tomatoes before throwing them.
  • This is a tomato lover's festival so strictly no other projectiles are allowed.
  • Be careful of the lorries going through the village.
  • You must not rip t-shirts.
  • Tomatoes must stop being thrown once the second incendiary device is fired.

After the tomato fight is over shopkeepers take down their tarpaulins and everyone chips in to hose down the town and each other and before long the town is transformed back to its former self.

Despite all the absolute carnage, each year this unbelievable fiesta and event occurs without major incident.

Please Note : The pre party and Official After Party are both held within licensed venues and entry is restricted to people 18 years of age and over. This is due to Spanish licensing laws. Sorry, but people under 18 years of age will not gain entry to these events.

What is the entry ticket to La Tomatina all about?
What is the entry ticket to La Tomatina all about?

The Bunol city council introduced for the first time in 2013 an entry ticket for all those wanting to go to La Tomatina. This is due to the massive growth of the numbers wanting to attend the festival and these entry tickets are extremely limited, to try to avoid a crush and other dangers on the town's small streets. Only people with the entry ticket (wrist band) will be allowed into Bunol on that day.

PP Travel has secured limited number of entry passes and these are included in the cost of all our La Tomatina tour packages.
The result of the controlled numbers made the La Tomatina experience so much better than the 5 years prior to 2013. It was safer, less crowded and more fun. For La Tomatina you must ensure you book with an approved travel company, like PP Travel, who will supply your entry wristband. Without this, you can not enter Bunol.

Ryanair fly from London Stansted, Liverpool, East Midlands and Dublin. Clickair fly from London Heathrow. Iberia fly from London Heathrow.

What should I bring and wear?
What should I bring and wear?

Before you depart, make sure you have your passport and your hotel voucher. The weather should be hot and sunny, so bring your swimming attire, towel, and sun cream. But be warned: it can get cool late at night - so also bring a light jacket or top.
For the Tomatina tomato fight in Bunol, you must firstly remember what ever you wear on the day is almost certain to be thrown away. All passengers take a change of clothes with them on the coach to Bunol. We suggest the following: Girls should wear tight fitting sports bra or tight singlet with built in bra (which cannot be easily ripped off) and shorts, with sandals or runners. Guys you should wear cheap shorts, shirt and shoes only. We also recommend swimming goggles to protect the eyes or better still an old throwaway peak cap. Girls should not wear bikinis if they plan on going into the centre, they will almost definitely be ripped off.
Again, anything you wear on the day of the tomato fight - including your foot wear - will be binned.

close
Why do we stay in Valencia?
Why do we stay in Valencia?

We stay in Valencia for the duration of the La Tomatina tour as accommodations in BUNOL are very limited. Also Valencia is only about a 50 minute transfer bus ride away and there is far more for you to do in Valencia than in BUNOL during Tomatina.

Is it dangerous? General requirements and info for families re dangerous activities.

La Tomatina, like all our holidays are party tours which suit outward going, energetic young people. As is written in our booking conditions, often large quantities of alcohol are consumed. Please consider whether this is the right sort of holiday for you before you book. This should especially be considered by families if they are considering booking. There is no age restriction on our tours, but parents and guardians are urged to consider the above before booking on any children. Also we are restricted by local laws in regarding access to minors to any planned events that involves alcohol.

The crazy packed event of La Tomatina is inherently crowded and dangerous. Passengers are very likely to experience wild crazy behaviour. Naturally these events are suited for adults. As per our full booking conditions, participation is entirely at your own choice and risk. You are responsible for your own safety and well being.

We do not encourage you to engage in any dangerous activity or to drink excessively. We cannot accept responsibility if you drink too much or engage in dangerous activities and suffer injury, illness, death, loss or damage as a result.

Is there an age limit?
Is there an age limit?

The City Council of Bunol who organises the La Tomatina event presently does not put an age restriction of those who can participate in the tomato fight. Whoever you should note that the people in the tomato fight can get pretty carried away randomly throwing tomatoes in all directions. It can, wherever you may be in the tomato fight, get pretty full on. There is no real vantage points within the tomato fight where you can just stand back and take in what is going on as a spectator. You are either in, or not.

It is important that you note that the pre party and Official After Party are both held within licensed venues and entry is restricted to people 18 years of age and over. This is due to Spanish licensing laws. Sorry, but people under 18 years of age will not gain entry to these events.

The PP La Tomatina Experience

Our passion for parties and fiestas goes back over two decades when we first embarked on our great series of festival tours. We have always believed in a serious party at PP - that is a tour that has to be run very professionally with fun, experienced and dedicated crew.

It is this experience we believe will make all the difference at La Tomatina. This is not a massive sprawling 16-day festival, like Munich's Oktoberfest or the 8 days of San Fermin celebrations at Pamplona. No, this fiesta is really all about a few hours of total madness in the tiny centre of Buñol. You need to be totally prepared to get the most of out it - and that is where our PP crew come in.

Our experienced team at PP will lead you right into the heart of the action to ensure you get the most of this short, but wild experience. Our fully trained crew will have you completely prepared for the battle - and of most importance - will lead you "past the ham pole" right into the thick of it. While tens of thousands of revelers decent upon Buñol annually, a huge number not informed or not led properly miss out on the action altogether - and hardly see an tomato.

During the naughties the numbers that came to Bunol exploded. The last straw was in 2012 when about 50,000 descended upon this small village. In 2013 the local council introduced for the first time a ticket system. All people must have a wristband to enter and PP Travel was selected as one of the few tour operators that could supply these wristbands entry as part of our package. 20000 tickets were issued making the now reduced capacity tomato fight a much, much better event to attend.

PP Travel will have a limited number of entry passes and these are included in the cost of all our La Tomatina tour packages.

That is why choosing who you travel with to La Tomatina is of such importance. The actual awesome but crazy fight lasts just hour and without proper preparation you can miss it all. Over 850 people travelled with us to Spain in 2015 and we are proud to say that all were given the opportunity to experience Tomatina to the max. Whether wanting to be in the middle of the carnage or experiencing it a bit more on the sidelines, we are certain all our passengers got the most out this unbelievable event. And with the even getting bigger and bigger and more packed, the leadership you will get from the PP crew is now even more valuablue.

Naturally, to operate a tour of this kind, you have to be totally organised and professional. This is why each year thousands of passengers put their trust in PP at both the Oktoberfest and the Running of the Bulls - and at La Tomatina it will again be no different. Our La Tomatina parties at both the terrace Terrace Umbarcle club, right in the heart of the Arts and Sciences area (next to most of our hoetls) and post Tomatina and free transportation and entry to the massive official La Tomatina after party.

And to top it all off, we offer five fantastic very modern comfortable hotels - all situated in a superb position in Valencia, all at a very economical tour price.

From start to finish our experienced team will be with you the whole way to ensure you are ready and get the most of this once in a lifetime fiesta - we can't wait to serve you in Spain.

History

La Tomatina is a festival held on the last Wednesday of August at Buñol, Valencia, Spain. Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world to fight in a harmless food throwing battle where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

Approximately 20,000 people come to the Tomatina tomato fight, and 240,000 pounds of tomatoes are used. In preparation for the dirty mess that will ensue, shopkeepers cover their storefronts in order to protect them from the carnage. At around 8.30am, the first event of the Tomatina Festival begins. A ham is placed upon a large greased pole, and the tomato fight can begin only when someone is able to climb to the top and bring it down. People struggle against each other, climbing atop one another, in order to be the one to pull down the ham. Despite all their best efforts, it is rare that the ham is reached and it has been almost a decade since it was last conquered.

During the naughties the numbers that came to Bunol exploded. The last straw was in 2012 when about 50,000 descended upon this small village. In 2013 the local council introduced for the first time a ticket system. All people must have a wristband to enter and PP Travel was selected as one of the few tour operators that could supply these wristbands entry as part of our package. 20000 tickets were issued making the now reduced capacity tomato fight a much, much better event to attend.

A cannon shot goes off signifying the start of the fight, usually around 11am.. Around six large dump trucks haul the bounty of tomatoes into the center of the town, Plaza del Pueblo - which is a simple typically Spanish narrow one way street - packed to the max! The tomatoes come from Extremadura, Spain, where they are less expensive. The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of the cannon, and the chaos begins. Once it begins, the battle is generally every man for himself, but it is not uncommon for it to develop into girls vs guys. Those who partake in this event are strongly encouraged to wear protective goggles and gloves. In addition, they must squish the tomatoes before throwing for safety precautions. Another rule is that no one is allowed to bring into this fight anything that may provoke someone into a more serious brawl, for instance a bottle. While the natives enjoy tearing the ragged clothing off other people, it is highly frowned upon to tear someone else's clothing.

After about an hour of absolute carnage, the fighting ends and the cannon is fired once more to signal the end. At this point no more tomatoes can be thrown. The cleaning process involves the use of fire trucks to spray down the streets, with water provided from a Roman aqueduct. People find water to wash themselves, most likely at the Buñol River. The celebration concludes with the festival of the town's patron saints, San Luis Bertràn, and the Virgin Mary.

The tomato fight of La Tomatina is not that old, compared to many Spanish festivals. It dates back to 1944 and has been held each year since simply for fun and pleasure - there is no known political or religious significance. No one is certain how this event originated and became a large holiday, but the one thing that is certain is that it began with someone throwing a tomato at another person!. With passerbys caught in the crossfire, the fight erupted into a grand battle since then. Possible theories on how the Tomatina began include a local food fight among friends, an anti-Franco protest, a juvenile class war, a volley of tomatoes from bystanders at a carnival parade, or as a practical joke on a bad musician. One of the most popular theories is that disgruntled townspeople attacked city councilmen with tomatoes during a town celebration. Another is that one of the participants in the town celebration fell down and when he stood up he started beating everyone around so everybody got caught up in a fight. There was a vegetable stall nearby with open crates showing the goods for sale. A riot broke out and a tradition was born ...

On the same Wednesday of August the following year, Bunol's crazy youths met at the square, but this time with their own tomatoes. In fact, in the following years the authorities forbade the celebration of what was already popularly known as the "day of the tomatina". During the 1950s it was allowed some years and banned others. However the popularity and tradition of the event kept growing and has been officially part of the Bunol calender since 1959.

From 1975 the festival was organised by "Los Clavarios de San Luis Bertrán" (San Luis Bertrán is the patron of the town of Buñol ) who provided the tomatoes, which until then were brought by the locals from their homes. Since 1980 the Town Hall has promoted the festival and every year the quantity of tons of tomatoes has rise as well as the number of participants from all over the world. It is now a established a truly international event, a very much must do on the European festival circuit.

And whatever the reason for the first tomato battle of La Tomatina, it is widely agreed that it is without doubt, the messiest of all Europe's festivals!
