Overview

Highlights / General details
This fair first began 20 years ago in the area where the old slaughterhouses of the city were located. Today it is the meeting point for people from the interior of the country who are deeply rooted to the customs of their provinces and for those living in this city and likes to be surrounded by handcrafts, typical foods, folkloric music and dance. In 1991 this neighborhood was declared as “Neighborhood of the Argentinean Gaucho”.

Itinerary
The tour begins around midday at your hotel and we drive to the fair. There you will have some free time to visit the old archway of the market and then we will visit the “Museo Criollo de los Corrales”. This museum has many rural objects and will give us an idea of how gauchos lived in the pampas through clothing, tools and everyday objects. It will also show us how in Argentina the stockbreeding industry started to develop, from the period when Indians ruled the pampas until Argentina became one of the main exporters and a world leader in meats. We’ll see weapons, knives, carriages, animals, paintings and even the famous “quincho” or “ranch”, the meeting point for the countryside meals. Later we’ll go to lunch at the fair stalls.
We will taste some typical foods such as tamales (ground meat with spices boiled into a corn leaf), humita en chala (similar to the tamales but instead of meat, ground corn with cheese), locro (a typical Argentinean stew) and the world-famous empanadas. Everything served with a delicious wine. After lunch we will have more free time to visit the stalls where we will find apart from the handcrafts mentioned above, sweets, musical instruments, albums, clothes, accessories and objects for everyday use.
Another place to visit is the historical Oviedo Bar a place that used to be an old grocery store that supplied the slaughterhouse workers.
