Gaucho Fair at Mataderos Opens Again!

By Tangocherie

The Mataderos Fair is open again! Hooray! My favorite way to spend a Sunday in Buenos Aires! Check out the website for information on all of the activities, performances, shopping, and eating.

Tango tourists often engage us to take them to various points of interest, such as La Boca and Caminito, San Telmo, and the Feria de Mataderos being the most popular destinations for our Tango Tours. Ruben is a fountain of information on the history, background, culture of the tango and old Buenos Aires.
A friend just asked me if it wasn't boring to return over and over again to places where I've been so many times.
The answer is absolutely not because each time it is a different experience. But even more so at the Feria de Mataderos.
Newly reopened today for the season (until the middle of December), it's the best way to spend a fine Sunday in Buenos Aires. (closed when it rains)
Tomorrow the weather looks like it will be perfect. Why not take advantage and Hie thee to the faire?! You won't be sorry. Try to get there early (noon) and have an asado lunch in time to see the Gaucho Games which begin around 3:00 p.m. Please don't overlook the Museo, which aside from the interesting displays, gives you a peak at a historical building unchanged for more than a century. (They also have a nice bathroom, FYI.)
If you'd like us to take you some Sunday, just make a reservation in advance.
