On September 14th Dam Square will be a battlefield for those who always wanted to try the world-famous “Tomatina”, a festival held in Spain where half-naked revellers pelts each other with squishy tomatoes.
A massive “fight” to protest against the Russian decision on the import of European products: set to last for a year, the ban covers the import of fruits and vegetables, meat, fish and diary products from the European Union, United States, Australia, Canada and Norway.Fighters will pay 15€ used for the final cleaning and to purchase around 120.000 tomatoes from the Dutch farmers affected by the ban. Afterward, whatever is left will be sent to a biogas plant and used for organic compost. A unique opportunity to see the Spanish festival for the first time in Amsterdam!
The tomato fight will start at 15:00. If you want to be a part of it yourself you can buy the tickets here.
