Calafate Gears Up for a Month Full of Festivities

February is just around the corner, which will bring a series of unique events and popular parties to the city of Calafate.

Through this month, each year the city adjacent to the Perito Moreno Glacier dresses up for a party to commemorate the Baptism of the Argentine Lake, preparing for the National Lake Festival, with sports events, tradition shows, and a huge closing with live music.

Next weekend, Saturday 03 and Sunday 04 of February, the Festival of Jineteada will take place at the Hielos Continentales rodeo field, where the best riders will compete, demonstrating their skill in different categories of gaucho traditions for a millionaire prize.

Simultaneously with the Jineteada, there will be a parade throughout the central area of Calafate City and other skill competitions.

On the other hand, from the 13th to the 17th of February at the Forest Amphitheater, you can enjoy a series of artists from different genres, with free admission.

The lineup of bands and soloists in charge of closing the different days of the festival is composed as follows:

  • February 13: Ulises Bueno and Emanero
  • February 14: Damas Gratis
  • February 15: Soledad Pastorutti and Kapanga
  • February 16: Luck Ra and FMK
  • February 17: Ke Personajes

After the annual celebration, there is still the start of the Turismo Carretera championship to enjoy in the city. In addition to starting the auto racing contest, there is great expectation for the premiere of new car models, including Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, and the modern Torino, among others.
