August 30, 2017 – August 31, 2017 all-day
Buol (near Valencia). The worlds biggest food fight takes place today as 35,000 revelers hurl 120 tons of tomatoes at each other (and the town) for two hours. La Tomatina ( Tomato Festival) occurs annually the last Wednesday of August. Festivities kick off with a competition to see who can reach a ham at the top of a greased pole. With the ham secured, the trucks arrive with tomatoes.
