Holidays and Festivals

The most famous festival in the region is the Festival Nacional de Doma y el Folclore that runs for ten days in January each year. This festival is internationally renowned for its concerts and dazzling displays of gaucho-inspired horsemanship. The festival was inaugurated in 1996 to raise funds for local schools and soon became a vast success. It attracts as many as 200,000 people each year and early booking of accommodation is recommended in order to avoid disappointment. Entrance costs $2 - 2.50.

La fiesta de la Vendimia y la Sagra de la Uva in March in the Colonia Caroya marks the end of the grape harvest and was originally dedicated to the work of those involved in the cultivation of wine. A warm, family event in which parts of the town are decked out with large tables for communal eating, the festival also includes exhibitions of old cars and local art as well as music and dance performances. Festival goers can witness grapes crushed under feet in the traditional manner and can also be present for the election of the region’s local beauty queen.

Begun in 1989 the annual festival of typical foods from Caroya (fiesta de las comidas tipicas de Caroyense) celebrates many of the region’s traditional delicacies during the July vacation. The flavors have a profound Italian influence because of the area’s history of immigration. The opportunity to try many of Caroya’s local delights including different meats, cheeses, desserts and wines is complemented by local dance and music performances.
