National Festival of the Lamb in “the most beautiful”

It will be from November 7th to 10th. There will be riders, parades, artisans fairs, stoves, shows and the typical lamb al grill.


Since 1977 Puerto Madryn celebrates the National Festival of the Lamb. It is an event in honor of the livestock work, which rescues the cultural values of the  Chubutense countryside. Although it had several interruptions, the Fiesta is still standing and will be held in November.

The Sports Complex of the Madryn Sports Club will again host this  popular festival  with a varied program. Cultural activities, shows, shearing demonstrations, dog grooming, rieteadas, election of the queen, will be part of this 2019 edition. There will also be an exhibition sector, artisans walk and gastronomic patio with proposals of dishes for all tastes.

Among the  Creole skills  we can highlight the riderings that summon the best jockeys from the Chubut fields and neighboring provinces. Fieldwork exhibitions, such as  live shearing demonstrations,  are other great attractions. They are characterized by being “unique in the area”, since they are made with scissors manually, as did the pioneers of the region at the beginning of the twentieth century.

 Demonstrations of field dogs  with their skills for sheep stowing are also performed. Winners of the Provincial Fiesta del Perro de Campo, which takes place in Telsen, are faithful participants of these demonstrations.

 The typical Patagonian lamb will be the gastronomic attraction  and can be consumed during the four days, both grill and stake. There will also be empanadas, sandwiches, casseroles, brochettes, regional meals and the capon stew campero.

The shows

During the popular festival, and from 18, folk ballets, groups and regional soloists will be presented inside the Luján Barrientos Gymnasium. Friday night will be closed by the winning group of the Viña del Mar festival,  Destino San Javier ; on Saturday the  Pimpinela Duo will be closed, and on Sunday the closing will be in charge of  Karina La Princesita.
