The Santafesina town of San Jorge is home to an important national holiday. The National Festival of Honey Producers is usually held in October . Due to the tireless work of several social institutions and the support shown by the municipality, the festivity is an integral part of the traditional festivals that the province has been sponsoring for several decades.
From a time to this part, the city of San Jorge has become one of the main honey producing centers in Argentina's economic geography. With years of tradition and accumulated knowledge, the neighbors dedicated to this work decided to launch in 1990 a feast of honey, with the aim of paying homage to the town and its inhabitants. Thanks to the initiative of the Association of Beekeepers and the mutual and social club La Emilia, the organization of the event was able to count on the support of the entire population and the municipal government immediately
The party brought together more than 900 visitors, obtained numerous candidates for queen, presented various musical shows, exhibitions, talks, conferences and outdoor activities. Developed in the Italian Society, due to its wide and comfortable space provided even with boxes, the festivity regularly includes the presence on its stage of the ballet of La Emilia called Don Lázaro, folklore groups such as Ah Casi Folklore and the central fact of the days that the event lasts: the presentation of the; n and coronation of the Queen of the Bees and Miss Abejita, with local and regional participation. Of course, in the vicinity of the club and the lounge there are several stands that offer some of the local and regional cuisine at modest sums, with the aim of ensuring that the whole family participate in the shows.
Parallel to the celebration, at the Rural Society of São Jorge there are different talks and conferences on specific topics for producers . We talk about the use of biofertilizers and the quality and efficiency of agrochemicals. Other panels are of a more general nature, such as the analysis of the political and economic situation in Argentina, the link between the countryside and the community, and the impact of the international situation on local production. Rural men and women, agroinvestors, owners, traders and the technical staff of the municipality participate in these activities.
The city of San Jorge is located in the department of San Martín, in the center west of the province of Santa Fe.Its beginnings date back to the end of the 19th century, although it should be noted that before the Spanish colonization the territory was occupied by native peoples . In 1886, Governor José Gálvez signed a decree authorizing its foundation. From 1888 the first houses were built and immigrants, mostly Italians, began to arrive . A flax oil factory, several mills and the railway station were also established.
Between the beginning and the middle of the 20th century, the town experienced economic growth linked to significant livestock and industrial production. In particular, the production of honey was highlighted, thanks to the installation of the first hives carried out by the Mensi family, to the point that their initial production was estimated at almost 2000 kilos of honey. In addition, a refrigeration company set up and with it an entire industrial park associated with the industrial processing of raw materials , from noodles to mosaics. Since then and until the present day, San Jorge has become a thriving and thriving society for both the province and the country.
