The Tomato Battle in Melbourne

Whether you say to-may-to or to-mah-to, don’t be left behind on the fun like a chutney, and ketchup fast to buy your tickets to the next big festival in Melbourne. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re talking about The Tomato Battle—an epic tomato-throwing festival, a la Tomatina style!

Sound saucy? Or seedy? Or just like some red hot fun!? Yeah, we reckon things are gonna get so crazy-sauce that it’ll be toh-much-to handle! Naaat. C’mon seriously, who couldn’t handle throwing soggy tomato pulp at complete strangers? 

And if you’re worried about the wastage, you can leave your eco-greenie hat at home (cos it might turn a tad red), because all the tomatoes provided for the event have already been deemed ‘non edible’ and marked for disposal! So really, it’s kinda like recycling. If, you know, recycling was fun, messy, and oh-so-memorable.

The Tomato Battle is set to takeover Flemington Racecourse on February 28th, and it’s not just about throwing veritable vegetable waste at the closest target! With drinks, a costume contest, DJs, and other live entertainment, this fruity, February festival is set to fling itself to the top of Melbourne’s best festivals.

So get on board this big hot mess, and buy your tickets to The Tomato Battle before they sell out like some Black Russians on sale!
