National Capital of Citriculture , what a level! A medal that is not for anyone, but it is for Concordia . Year by year, a celebration is held that exhibits the importance of the native citrus sector . There, artists, producers and audiences from both the city and the rest of the provinces meet to throw tangerines on the roof. It is an opportunity for locals to commemorate their history and establish where they intend to head. In addition, fundamental tools are provided so that the industry can continue to grow prosperously as it is doing.
By the mid-1960s , the department was already looking at the whole country, because of the relevance it had in terms of the production and marketing of the citrus . Therefore, in 1966 , the first National Festival of Citriculture took place on its floor. The event was organized since its inception by the Association of Citriculturists representing all producers in Concordiense. Although not everything was always in a straight line. In fact, there were periods when the sector went through crises that prevented the regularity of the celebration. But the situation could be reversed from 1980 onwards.
Thereafter, the increase in planted areas generated greater harvests thanks to the demand of European countries. Therefore, already by the beginning of 1990 production gained consolidation and the holiday was able to achieve its continuity. Even during the years that followed him, the level of call was growing more and more. To the point where 80,000 people were registered in mid-2000 . At the same time, the quality and level of artists and shows provided became proportional to the exponential takeoff it was developing.
The event takes place at the Concordia Trade Fair and is recognized as Expo Citrus . Lurking around the place, we can find the general public, producers, technicians, harvesters and packers. Cycles of talks and forums linked to central issues in the sector are also planned throughout its duration. The speakers who lead the activities are representatives of public and private institutions . These cover topics such as the adoption of irrigation systems, foreign trade, citrus reconversion 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 this through different proposals that include recitals and artistic shows . For starters, the children's classical dance ballet of the Institute of Art and Movement and the local folk ballet bring the movement. Then, the stage leaves room for music to vibrate the floor. Some of the prominent characters who achieved it were Patricia Sosa, Los Caligaris, Los Alonsitos and Memphis La Blusera.
And what is the most anticipated moment? The election of the queen. Unshakable tradition . All applicants, which can be from Concordia or other parts of the region, parade in vintage cars throughout the city. With a waste of sympathy and greeting the population, they look before the jurors in search of consecration . And thus, reign in the land of citrus .
