Every year, the Pampean plain of the province of Cordoba invites Argentines to enjoy a unique event. A historic event, which is part of the with more than 50 years of editions, the Tambo National Festival remains an unmissable tradition. The party for everyone combines different disciplines and with several goals. The main objective is to pay tribute to the workers and producers of tamberos. Another goal, no less important, is that shared by all our traditions: to get together. Get together to eat, enjoy and dance. But, above all, to claim the positive side of being Argentinean . The part that unites us, the collective work, the exploitation of our natural resources, and the love of holidays.
This celebration is held every February of each year. It is the summer event expected by all. It takes place in the town of James Craik, a city that is located in the Tercero Arriba department, province of Córdoba. James Craik is the National Capital of Tambo. In the middle of the Pampean plain, which is a region with great agricultural and livestock development, the tambo is worshipped. Club Chañares is one of the main organizers.
