The Entrerrian town of Concordia is so famous for its citrus activity that it has a party where you will not miss juice.
National Capital of Citriculture , what a level! A medal that is not for anyone, but for Concordia . Year by year, a celebration is held that shows the importance reached by the native citrus sector . There, artists, producers and an audience , both from the city and from the rest of the provinces, gather to throw mandarins on the roof. It is an opportunity for locals to commemorate their history and establish where they intend to go. In addition, key tools are provided so that the industry can continue to grow thriving as it has.
By the mid-1960s , the department already had the gaze of the whole country, which was due to the relevance it had in terms of the production and marketing of citrus . So, in 1966 , the first National Citriculture Festival took place on its soil. The event was organized from the beginning by the Citriculturists Association representing all Concordian producers. Although not everything was always in a straight line. In fact, there were periods in which the sector went through crisis that prevented the regularity of the celebration. But the situation could be reversed from 1980 onwards.
From then on, the increase in planted areas generated higher harvests thanks to the demand of European countries. Therefore, already by the beginning of 1990 the production gained consolidation and the holiday was able to achieve its continuity. In the years that followed, the level of call was growing more and more. To the point that, in mid-2000, 80,000 people were registered. At the same time, the quality and level of artists and shows provided became proportional to the exponential take-off he was developing.
The event takes place at the Concordia Fair and is recognized as Expo Citrus . Prowling around the place, we can find the general public, producers, technicians, harvesters and packers. In addition, cycles of talks and forums related to central issues of the sector are planned throughout its duration. The speakers leading the activities are representatives of public and private institutions . These cover topics such as the adoption of irrigation systems, foreign trade, citrus conversion and associativism.
Of course there is also room for fun and entertainment . In this sense, during the evenings and evenings the party is explicitly dedicated to the social and cultural . It does so through different proposals that include recitals and artistic shows . To begin with, the children's classical dance ballet of the Institute of Art and Movement and the local folk ballet provide the movement. Then, the stage leaves room for the music to vibrate the floor. Some of the outstanding characters who achieved it were Patricia Sosa, Los Caligaris, Los Alonsitos and Memphis La Blusera.
And what is the most awaited moment? The choice of the queen. Unshakable tradition . All applicants, who may be from Concordia or other parts of the region, parade in old cars throughout the city. With a waste of sympathy and greeting the population, they show off before juries in search of consecration . And thus reign in the land of the citrus .
