Areco is the symbolic center of Argentina’s vestigial gaucho culture, and for the Fiesta de la Tradición the town puts on the country’s biggest celebration of criollo traditions. The weekend event is held in early to mid-November, and includes displays of horsemanship, folk dancing, live music, craft exhibitions and plenty of grilled meat. If you’re in the area, don’t miss it.
