Social travel network, TripTogether, announces their top three unique festivals to visit this August with new travel friends.

The summer festival season is heating up and the social travel website and mobile app TripTogether has announced some of the most distinctive August festivals to attend around the world. With a network of over 300,000 single travelers to explore, TripTogether offers firsthand experience of the most exciting and unique celebrations taking place across the globe.

Crop Over, Barbados

Over the course of the summer, Barbados fills with lively Calypso rhythms, the intoxicating aroma of Bajan cuisine, fireworks, costumes, and rum! Crop Over is a tradition that began in 1780 with the celebration of the end of the sugarcane harvest. Though the sugar industry has since declined in the area, the rum filled parties continue to be celebrated, attracting visitors from across the world. The party reaches its peak during the first Sunday in August, and TripTogether’s experience shows this to be the prime time to experience the wild events in the lovely Caribbean Island of Barbados.

Festival de Tango

The Tango Buenos Aires Festival runs from August 13-26, 2014. The two-week festival celebrates the sensual and passion filled dance originating in Buenos Aries. Performances fill the city, along with dance classes for beginners, film screenings, and book signings. The real draw, however, is the Mundial de Tango, the Tango World Championship, which features the very best tango dancers from around the globe. For the full experience, it’s great to bring along a dance partner found on TripTogether. Don’t forget, it takes two to Tango.

La Tomatina

Spain’s legendary tomato throwing festival takes place every year during the last Wednesday in August. Beginning in 1945, the world’s largest food fight fills the Plaza del Pueblo in the small town of Buol. Approximately 140 tons of ripe red tomatoes are hurled through the air resulting in a red squishy riot of fun. TripTogether tips include bringing your goggles and sticking around after the fun for the fireworks, festivities, and the delicious Buol paella cook-off.
