La Tomatina Festival 2018

Buñol, Spain | 27 - 31 August

¡La Tomatina 2018

La Tomatina, Spain’s famous tomato battle, is the world’s biggest food fight. This crazy war of salad vegetables (fruit?) is waged in the streets of Buñol, just outside the city of Valencia. Discover the pleasure of throwing tomatoes at your friends and strangers, while dodging those hurled at you. And while we’re here, Stoke likes to use the opportunity to explore Valencia, Spain’s third biggest city. Parties, playas, paellas, oranges… Stoke’s La Tomatina includes massive Foreplay party with live performances by Hiaground, Paul The Kid, Kiwi Pips, Honey Hayze & Mesmeriser, your stay in pre-erected twin share tents with mat and sleeping bag, or in a hotel, hot and hearty breakfast each morning, dinners on the 27th and 29th, transfers to and from the tomato fight, experienced guides to lead you through the mayhem, beach games and a bloody mary the morning of the tomato fight!

THE TOMATO FIGHT

The concept is quite simple – tonnes and tonnes of tomatoes are dumped in the village of Buñol, and then thousands of partiers from around the world scoop them up and hurl them at each other. It’s a war! But it’s a war of fun, a war of love. Nobody gets hurt, we all just get a little dirty. You just don’t know the pleasure of hurling tomatoes until you’ve tried it, and from the moment the canon fires signalling the start of the battle, we have about an hour to throw as many tomatoes as we can – and there are millions to choose from. Once the fight is done, we wash off in the Buñol river, and then make our way back to Valencia (where we’ll continue to find tomato on our bodies for hours afterwards, if not days).

Here’s a firsthand account of a day at La Tomatina with Stoke Travel.

STAY WITH STOKE TRAVEL AT LA TOMATINA

With Stoke Travel you’ve got two options. There’s our beachside campsite, where we have our huge “Foreplay Party” the night before the fight, cook a giant paella (Valencia’s most well-known dish) for all of us to dine on, hit the sand for some beach games and splash around in the on-site pool. At the campsite, located along the coast just north of Valencia, there is a bar, shop and restaurant. Stoke also has our bar, where you can take advantage of unlimited beer and sangria for €10 extra. The night after the tomato fight we’ll load up the buses and take you to the optional official La Tomatina after party. You’ll be staying in twin-share, pre-erected tents with mattresses and sleeping bags, eating chef prepared breakfasts and dinners and meeting hundreds of like-minded travellers from all over the world (and preparing to throw tomatoes at them).

The second option is to stay in Valencia city in a three star hotel. Here you will sleep in a real bed surrounded by real walls, enjoy a buffet breakfast and welcome drinks upon arrival. You won’t miss out on the action at the campsite, as there is an option to catch a bus to our beachside camp for the Foreplay Party, and with the hotel option your after party ticket is included.

Both accommodation options include transfers to the Tomato fight and back again, experienced guides for the tomato fight and your stay in Valencia, and a Bloody Mary on the morning of the battle. There is also the option to party in the city of Requeña for the Water and Wine fight on the night before La Tomatina.

For La Tomatina you can either meet us in Valencia, ride with us from Barcelona, Madrid or San Sebastian, come with us to Ibiza after the festival, or if you’re pressed for time do our 24-hour trip from Barcelona.

  • Valencia, Spain

    We stay just north of Valencia city, in a beach town called Puzol (Puçol in the local lingo – it’s pronounced Puthol though, confusing right?) Puzol is well connected to Valencia city, and we have our own private shuttles for La Tomatina Festival and for visits to town. Puzol is located on a stretch of beautiful Mediterranean beaches and every year we arrive and blow the town’s collective mind.

    Our camp is beachside… you can get out of your tent, make a beeline for the beach and be splashing about within 5 minutes of opening your sangria-soaked eye sockets. The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool with slide, clean amenities, great authentic Spanish atmosphere (it’s not uncommon to be invited into a family’s caravan for a meal of authentic local paella).

    And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!

    Campsite Address:

    Camping Pucol
    Camí Riu Turia 3
    46530
    Puzol Playa
    Valencia

    How to get there

    Jump on the ride with us buses we have running from Barcelona, Madrid and San Sebastian or meet us there! Check out GoEuro for the best rates on buses, trains, and flights around Europe.

    Getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy!

    If you fly to Valencia airport, there are two underground lines which link the airport, the city centre and the port: the line 3 (Rafelbunyol-Aeroport) and the line 5 (Marítim Serrería – Torrent Av. / Aeroport). The station is at the ground floor of the regional flights terminal. The journey takes around 25 minutes. Tickets: €4.90 (3.90 + €1 for the card)

    Take lines 3 or 5 and stop at Xativa station then make your way to Nord Railway Station (Estación del Norte).

    From there, jump the next train to Puçol (check train timetable on RENFE) We have set pickup times (9am – 8pm on the hour on the 27th and 28th August) and outside of that, email us at info@stoketravel.com 24 hours in advance and we’ll do our best to pick you up. If not, it’s a short taxi ride.

  • Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here….

    Should I bring a change of clothes?
    Yes, especially if you are on the day trip. The bus driver will not let you on in tomato pulp. If you’re not on the day trip, maybe just bring a black plastic bag so they’ll let you on the bus back to camp. Also, be sure to stand directly in front of one of the hose-holding locals and let the beautiful, cold water clean you of excess fruit baggage before you head back towards the bus.

    What else should I bring? 
    Sunglasses and sunscreen as it gets pretty hot, a pillow and torch for your tent, goggles, condoms, a waterproof camera, swimmers to have a dip in the pool afterwards, old shoes that can be thrown out after the madness, and shampoo if you don’t want your hair stained red for the next month. Oh and don’t forget a towel.

    What is the this foreplay party?
    The foreplay party is what kicks starts the party at our campsite with live bands and DJs. Make sure to pack a good party shirt!

    Are the shuttles to and from Tomatina and the other Water & Wine festival included in the price?
    Yes and no. The shuttles to and from Tomatina are included. It’s €15 extra for the transportation to and from the Water & Wine fight. We also throw in some boxes of red wine to get you started. Please note the Tomatina bracelet is not included in the Meet Us There price, but is €10 extra. This is not our choice! The town council has imposed this extra charge. It is included in the package deals.

    Do you provide transport from Valencia centre?
    No, but getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy and we pick you up from the train station there. We have set pickup times (9am – 8pm on the hour on the 27th and 28th August) and outside of that, email us 24 hours in advance and we’ll do our best to pick you up. If not, it’s a short taxi ride. See how to get there details for more info.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty fricking good at food.

    It said on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
    Yes, the twin tents are two-man tents. We have two-man tents, so if you are in a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Tents are allocated on arrival, so just let us know your preferences when you arrive. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want to leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… You never know…

    And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite is awesome! It has a giant pool, a playground, a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, and it’s a five-minute walk from the beach.

    If someone throws a tomato at my head can I kick them?
    Only if you kick them hard in the shins.

    Will the tomato be good for my skin?
    If by good you mean sting like hell but still be worth it, then yes.

    If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
    We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

    Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
    No, but if you have any specific questions you must email info@stoketravel.com – the guys in the office know absolutely everything about anything.
