The massive festival of folklore in Santa Fe

From 11 to 13 January, the Fisherman's Festival will be held, the main folklore meeting in the province. It brings together the most important artists of the genre.


Every year, the small seaside town of  Sauce Viejo , 25 km from Santa Fe capital, hosts the gigantic Fisherman Festival. The event is organized in the Balneario Don Roque and, year after year, brings together the main exponents of the country's folklore.

In its 36th edition, the meeting will begin on Saturday 11 and end on Monday 13 January. On this occasion, they will visit Sauce Viejo  Abel Pintos , Jorge Rojas, Chaco Palavecino and local Orlando Veracruz, along with twenty local and national ensembles. In addition, an emotional tribute is expected to be paid to the  icon  of Santafesino  Horacio Guarany , when it is two years after his death.

In addition, the organizers assure that the buffet will be luxurious: you can taste variants of the traditional fried fish of the region.

 Provincial tradition 

In the last edition, more than  sixty thousand people  attended the Fisherman's Festival. It is one of the most attractive folkloric weekends, at the level of the largest in the country, such as  Cosquín  or Villa María.

Sauce Viejo is a small and very beautiful town in Santafesina. It is a fishing village, with quinta houses, a lot of green and a lot of tranquility. Just over 20 km separate it from the provincial capital. But, every summer, its quiet spa becomes a real  arena , which has nothing to envy the mega-events of the first world. What is the only difference? The unmistakable warmth of the Argentinian interior. You can go to the Fisherman's Festival with sun loungers, chairs, folding and conservative tables. The whole family comes together to enjoy a unique event.

Do you dare to spend a different summer? To pure folklore, river, and enjoying the famous santafesina cordiality. By the way, you can take advantage of the unique landscape of the Argentine coast.
