Every year, hundreds of artisans from Argentina come together in Cañada Rosquín, a small town in Santafesina.
Cañada Rosquín is located in the San Martín Department. In the central west of the province of Santa Fe. Located on the side of Route 34, it is 146 km from the capital city. We are talking about a commune that does not reach ten thousand inhabitants . However, every November it hosts a double national gathering, of great magnitude : the National Festival of Creole Crafts and the National Meeting of Sogueros Hilario Frudone.
Traditionally agricultural center of its province, on holidays all Cañada Rosquín carries out a large exhibition of crafts. It has the presence of artisans from the region and the rest of the country . In addition, dances, music shows and typical meals.
The initiative to celebrate once a year the work of local artisans was taken by a group of members of the culture commission of the municipality of Cañada Rosquín. The aim was to rescue, conserve and disseminate the artisanal knowledge accumulated by the neighbors over decades. But also, the idea of the organizers was to provide a space for exchange of knowledge among those engaged in such work , with the perspective of bringing the rest of the country together.
Declared of national interest by the Ministry of Tourism of the Nation in 1998, over time the event gained in concurrence and scheduled events . The layout of the activities is in charge of the Traditionalist Center “La Carreta”. The mission of this institution is to revalue artisanal and cultural creations based on local traditions and customs.
In recent editions, nearly 200 artisans from all over the country gather in Cañada Rosquín, during the weekend of this national holiday. Also, the visiting public has accompanied the initiative with their presence. The organizers estimate that almost 20,000 people attend the meeting attracted by the quality and variety of craft shows, dances, music and dance. Over the years, several musicians have passed through the city stage. The Duo Coplanacu, Roxana Carabajal, Duo Ympakto, Rejunte de Nogales, Canto Rodado, La Hernandez Boero, Diego Zalazar and his Ensemble, Bruno Arias, Antonio Figueroa Trio, Nuevas Roots and Los Majesos del Chamamé were among others who showed their art at the festival. Clearly, we're talking about a very folkloric encounter.
The activities gathered have expanded to the point that together with crafts, music, art and dance form a colorful and festive setting of the city. In addition to the traditional gaucho walk through the streets of the village, there is a creole lunch, a large jineteada with four tropillas, the performance of various dance schools “La Carreta” and the animation of regional comedians.
The closing of the festival is in charge of the municipal authorities and the center “La Carreta”. There is an invitation to all those present to meet next year in the same commune . Also, while the speakers are on stage, below the attendees taste typical dishes and drinks , waiting to return to their places of origin in the hope of returning the following year.
