Tomatina en Reno: Join the nation’s largest food fight

tomatinaKnowing no bounds, the Club Cal Neva will once again push the envelope with La Tomatina en Reno, with the hopes of starting the nation’s largest ever food fight.

On Saturday, Aug. 29 at approximately 6 p.m., the Reno City Plaza at 10 North Virginia Street will be covered with people drenched in tomato juice as a crowd estimated to be between 3,000-5,000 people participate in the country’s biggest tomato fight.

Admission in to the tomato fight is a minimum $10 donation with all profit from the event going to the American Cancer Society.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. with street vendors on Virginia Street between First and Second streets. Visitors will be able to enjoy plenty of food, beverage, and live street acts while they peruse for gifts and novelties. Food and merchandise vendors will also be on the plaza venue where live bands and other entertainment will be showcased.

The day will climax at 6 p.m. when roughly five tons of tomatoes will spill onto the plaza and thousands will scramble to pick up their ammunition for the biggest food fight the city of Reno, the state of the Nevada, and quite possibly the United States has ever seen.
