Home Argentine Traditions Celebrate the work

Celebrate the work

In La Sarita there is a great party in honor of work. Many more people attend than those who live in the small town of Santafesino.

Celebrar el trabajo

Salame, ravioli,  beer , milk, wheat, strawberries... The elements of the production of the interior of Santa Fe come together with tradition when it  comes to celebrating . So, there are  parties  where you dance, eat and  drink to think about anything, but work.

But there is a small Santafesina town where work is so important that it was decided to choose it  to name the village festival .

In La Sarita, people gather to  honor the work of their ancestors and the present . “It is the fruit of that attitude of life that our parents and grandparents marked us, with their tensonous and laborious example,” says a former local.

The event is very simple, but, in it, the less than two thousand inhabitants of this  small commune  located 40 kilometers from Reconquista congregate and offer the fruits of their work. Thus, there is a lunch with stands for exhibitors. In the afternoon, the number of visitors grows considerably, because  there is a musical festival  that is always closed  with renowned artists  .

Another feature of this event is that, traditionally,  the village authorities take the  opportunity to  show their people some new machinery that was purchased to  work in the field, or to inaugurate  some refurbishment.  

In this town  everyone puts their bit  for each year's meeting. The Church lends the parish site to build the infrastructure,  those who know how to cook  exhibit their dishes and  those who treasure memories  of the times of immigration exhibit them in samples.

It would be nice if, between so much exacerbation of the  joda  and the excessive leisure seen in many corners of the country,  other towns take the example  of La Sarita and pay tribute to work.
