Gaucho culture is a large part of Argentina’s history and each year the country celebrates it through the Day of Tradition. The festival honors all things cowboy-related, and serves as an ode to Jose Hernandez, a poet who wrote about the life of gauchos throughout his career.

 

While the day is celebrated throughout all of Argentina, the main festival takes place in San Antonio de Areco, a quintessential gaucho town. It begins with hundreds of men and children parading through the main streets alongside freshly groomed horses. The parade also features expert riders showcasing their skills on wild horses, and a classic marching band playing traditional tunes.

 

After the parade the town comes alive with horse races, games, live music and dancing. Visitors are welcome to participate in the festivities, and it’s a great way to gain insight into Argentina’s vibrant history. Of course there’s plenty of delicious food to be had here too! The main feast is called the asado, which features traditional meals of grilled chorizo and barbeque beef alongside international delights. During the evening the Parque Criollo, a museum dedicated to gaucho life, puts on an epic performance full of music and dancing that lasts long into the night.

 

There are few opportunities to celebrate something that has had such a huge impact on Argentina’s history, which is why the Day of Tradition is a must for any traveler to the region.
