La Tomatina Tomato Festival
19 designs collected by spoonflower
A must-see event on many travelers’ bucket lists, La Tomatina is one of the world’s largest food fights, held in a small town in Spain. Believe it or not, this has been a tradition since the 1940s, though no one knows how it started. With over 100 metric tons of overripe tomatoes thrown in recent years, it’s quite a scene. Since there are only 20,000 tickets allowed for the hour-long fight, claim your spot early—and don’t forget your goggles. Celebrating in your kitchen with local tomatoes instead? Sew up a retro half-apron inspired by this summer fruit or make the Spanish classic Pan con Tomate.
