In this way, music, with the melodies of renowned national artists, invade the stage “Ernesto Montiel” and fill the community with joy. Although there is also room for dance, singing and a village program of activities that promise not to give rise to boredom. With a trajectory dating back to 1976, the city of Federal offers an event that attracts new audiences and reconquest the faithful .
Inside the property, visitors can enjoy a amazing artisans fair , which expose manual works. Likewise, it is possible taste varied regional menus , such as roast, choripanes and fried cakes, to name a few. At the same time, the National Final of the “New Values” Contest takes place, tributes are made and the Bronze Cachencho is delivered. Without leaving aside shows led by great figures from the folklore that freaks fans of the chamamecero genre crazy.
However, the holiday not only invites you to sit and enjoy the music. On the contrary, it has several attractions that even start weeks before. Such is the case with popular dancelantas which anticipate the spirit of the event beforehand. Another of them is the Chamamé International Athletic Competition , involving athletes from national and neighbouring countries. In turn, workshops and talks about the coastal rhythm are given because you can always learn a little more about its secrets.
During 1976, the province of Entre Ríos began to have festivals in all its corners and Federalenses always participated with enthusiasm. For the arrival of November, the Federal Colonia received the magical presence of the accordion and the voice of the great Tarragó Ros. In that same dance where music took the prominence they met René Mazzuco, Chirino Insarrualde and German Weitemeir , among other characters. They were the ones who carried out the initiative to form the first commission, which was supported by the municipal government in turn. Then, with the approval of the authorities, the first chamamé festival of the north entrerriano was launched .
However, months before the longed encounter happened, the Chamamecera community suffered a terrible loss. That was when the night of December 6 passed away Don Ernesto Montiel The lord of the accordion. From there, the city took its melodies as a flag and decided that the main stage of the celebration should bear its name. The first edition took place in the facilities of the Club Social y Deportivo Talleres and had unforgettable presentations. Among the artists that marked the beginning were Mario Millán Medina, Tarragó Ros, Linares Cardozo, Raúl Barboza and Los Hermanos Gigena.
In the beginnings of the festival, a Paranaense cartoonist called Abel “chirino” Insarrualde embodied a caricature that turned into a flagship . It was about the image of a countryman in the area . The illustration went to accompany the festival's promotions on a permanent basis to the present day. He even came to life when in 1981, in the sixth edition, a doll the size of a man appeared. He appeared on stage dressed in bombacha bataraza, red shirt, espadrilles and a verdulera. And it's not that he stood still, but he played chamame by mechanical movements. That night he was baptized Cachencho, and suddenly a legend was born.
