Why do you pay to enter the entrance to the Tomatina?

 04/06/2018

The Tomatina is a party where the residents of Buñol dedicate themselves to throwing tomatoes at each other, with the passing of the years this party began to be known in the surrounding villages, thus attracting a greater number of participants, Given its exclusivity and fun, it was extended to become a world famous party, attracting people from all over the world.


This ended up making residents and visitors uncomfortable, since the very fact of walking around Buñol became a real madness and the town went from having a census of approximately 10.
In the tomato battle zone, the space was approximately 10 people per square meter, which reduces the safety of the participants since there is a high risk of avalanche.

You can't have a patron saint's day that makes both residents and visitors uncomfortable, said the mayor of the town.
For this reason, after the celebration of the Tomatina in 2012, which brought together nearly 50,000 people, it was decided that the participation of this festivity had to be limited for the good of all, it was decided to expand the space of the battle zone, thus giving a larger space per participant, about 4 or 5 per square meter, in addition to limiting the number of participants to no more than 20.000 a secure figure for this type of event, giving way to the sale of tickets or tickets for access, of which about 5,000 would be reserved for locals, the other 15,000 would be put on sale for visitors.

Tickets are sold through travel agencies, offering attendees a professional service.

The company that stands out the most is tickeststomatina.com with very attractive offers with bus departures from Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. The idea is that the attendees go in large transport, since the Tomatina does not have parking for private cars.

The services also include a tour guide who accompanies the guests and helps them to enjoy the party better.
In addition tickeststomatina.com has several offers with articles necessary for the battle like glasses, commemorative t-shirt of the Tomatina, drink next to the typical Valencian paella in its reserved zone, in which you will be able to enjoy with music and good atmosphere. In its fun zone they also have lockers where you can deposit your most valuable belongings as well as clothes to change in complete safety.
