The popular festivals of our country are the root of the many feelings of our people. In these meetings they claim, remember and celebrate past and present with their identities. In these celebrations, memory and history are breathed. Each National Festival is a source of diversity, creativity and enjoyment , and that is why knowing them builds us as Argentines. In this note, we tell you all about one of the Caroian and Cordovan celebrations par excellence: the National Festival of Fruti-Horticulture.
This festival is traditionally celebrated after the harvest of the vine along with the Provincial Harvest Festival. It is a meeting where the aim is to exhibit and make visible the fruit-horticultural potential of the central area of the province through a set of artistic and recreational activities. Above all, this tradition focuses on recognizing the work of the thousands of producers in the region who leave their life and soul in each collection , and become one with the field.
The origin of this celebration was given in 1939, when the first celebration was held to pay tribute to the productive activity of the vineyards of the region. This holiday usually takes place in March, once the harvest is over. Its duration varies according to the edition and can be extended over a week. And, due to the kinship between fruit-horticulture and vine, this National Festival symbolically joins the provincial celebration that honors the harvest and harvesting of grapes.
Like every Argentine event, during this stage of celebration there are stages where numerous renowned artists and live shows pass. The unfailing presence? Local musicians and national transcendence. The event also includes the presentation of allegorical groups linked to the theme of the vine. In addition, visitors delight in long-awaited rites such as the blessing of fruits and the traditional parade of floats . Agribusiness exhibitions are also held in which the various products of the region are proudly exhibited. These expo serve as a contact area between multiple producers and are consolidated as a space for mutual training among farm workers.
The National Fruit Horticulture Festival, which today has a history of more than twenty-three editions , was split for the first time from the Provincial Harvest Festival in 2012. One of the main objectives of this event is to transmit cultural traditions from generation to generation through various manifestations such as language, dance, food and religious rite. Its organizers start from the concept that collective festivities are primary events for family reunion and are the exponent of the culture of a people.
The celebration is usually closed with the election of the National Queen of Frutihorticulture and Provincial Harvest. A characteristic practice of all national festivals, which has been reviewed by society. Contests, exhibitions and ballots are prepared around this election in which the whole town participates. This event is one of the most representative in the area and consolidates itself as one of the most important national traditions.
