Festival of Tradition (Gaucho Festival) 2022

Gaucho cowboys from all over Argentina come to San Antonio de Areco to celebrate their history and lifestyle

Dates: December 6, 2022

The oldest gaucho celebration of Argentina originates from 1939 and includes a parade, rodeo, and a gaucho skills demonstration in the “Parque Criollo Ricardo Güiraldes.” Check out these true guardians of the noble traditions of this country. Participants are not only gauchos (which means cowboys), but also musicians, dancers, and artists as well.

One of the traditions of the festival is the Criolla style barbeque, where one can try this delicious dish, steak marinated with mushrooms and wine, crammed into a French baguette. On the last day of the festival, all the gauchos organize a bonfire as a final accord of the fiesta.
