Festival de Folklore de Guadalupe
| 16 January, 2020 |

January is the month of folklore in Santa Fe. A week after the Fisherman’s Festival, Friday 17 and Saturday 18 January, will take place in the esplanade of the Basilica of Guadalupe the traditional Folkloric Festival in honor of the Virgin, Patroness of the City.

During two evenings with free access, dozens of singers, ensembles and ballets will meet in northern Santafesino. It is important to note that the Basilica takes advantage of the massiveness of the meeting to request donations from attendees for those who most they need. On this occasion, disposable diapers for children and non-perishable foods are being ordered.

It’s almost suspended.

This will be the 32nd edition of the meeting. It is always done with free access, but counting, to be able to deploy such scenery and sound, with important state and private support. The national economic situation was on the verge of provoking the suspension of the Festival, as the contribution that would be received on this occasion was scarce.

Finally, after meetings of the organizing commission and appealing for goodwill by many artists who would reduce their cachet, the Festival will end performing, but only in two evenings (historically there were three).


The Friday 17 will perform the Ballet La Warp, Ángeles Deló, Andrés Clerc, Francisquito Almada, Los Caldenes, Fabricio Rodríguez and Coty Hernández.

The Saturday 18 will participate the Ballet Yapeyú, Araceli Tano, Identity, Efrain Colombo, Ceibales de Salta, Los Campedrinos and La Cantada.

As a always, the organization clarifies that allows the use of personal chairs and lounge chairs, but they rent chairs on site at a popular price, which, in this particular circumstance, especially helps to cover the costs.

About Guadalupe

In honor of the Mexican advocation of the Virgin, the patron saint of Santa Fe, the neighborhood where the Temple is erected bears the same name. It is one of the most residential and beautiful areas of the city and unfolds, from the waterfront and the Setúbal Lagoon, a couple of kilometers to the west. The Basilica, visited every year by hundreds of thousands of faithful, has a huge esplanade where the congregation congregates during important liturgical dates. In addition, it serves as an “open-airstadium ” for the traditional folk gathering.
