Day 1 - Wednesday 29 August 2018
The Big Day - La Tomatina
Departure is at 7am from Avinguda de l'Institut Obrer de Valencia 23, Valencia which is on the opposite side of the road to the NH Valencia Las Ciencias 3* Hotel (Google Maps). The transfer by coach to Bunol will be approximately 1 hour. The Tomatina festival commences around 11am, following the desperate attempts of the human ladders to grab a large ham at the top of a greased pole in the centre of town.
Several dump trucks full of tomatoes are emptied into the main, very narrow street of the town and then the fun really begins with the locals and other travellers covering each other in tomatoes. After approximately one hour a gun blast signals the end of the fight and everyone goes for a welcome shower and joins in the fiesta. We depart Bunol mid afternoon returning to Valencia for another much needed wash and rest.
Official La Tomatina After Party
We offer free admission to the official La Tomatina after party if arriving before 9pm (€20 admission after 9pm). This is nearly as big as the event itself, with over 3000 people attending this great outdoor event. The After Party is the official After Party. It is run by a local Valencia organisation. The Official After Party is held outside of Valencia near Valencia's airport but the organisers of the After Party run shuttles between Valencia's old town (Plaza Tetuan) and the After Party venue. They run from around 6pm to the early hors of the morning. Arrive before 9pm for free entry. After 9pm they are at liberty to charge you the full entry price. Please note that the After Party is very popular so best to get there early to get in!
During La Tomatina it is recommended that women wear tight fitting sports bra and/or singlet and shorts, along with footwear such as sandals or trainers/runners. Men generally wear old cheap shorts, T-shirt and shoes only. All passengers take a change of clothes to Bunol and plan on throwing out everything you wear to the tomato fight.
