Caminos & Sabores
This event will be open to the public. It is the third installment of a yearly event. There will be over 250 stands all representing all the regions of Argentina. Unlike this last fair we just wrapped up, there will be many people attending this one.
This one runs from the 12th of July to the 15th of July from 12noon to 10pm every day. The entrance is $12 pesos. On Thursday and Friday retired people pay $6 pesos and if you are a student in the field of tourism or the food industry then you get in for free. If you are a business owner in the food industry then you also get in for free. I guess on Thursday and Friday we are supposed to feed everyone...yikes.
This will be the first time we attend this fair as well.
The fair is divided into sections called Paths. There is the Cheese Path, Meat Path, Oils & Spices Path, Mate Path, Drinks Path, Rural Tourism Path, Fruits Path, Path of Traditions, and last but not least the Sweet Path. That´s the one I am going to be in. So what will you find in the Sweet Path? There will be honey, dulce de leche, jams and jellies, chocolate, sugar, candied fruit, and cookies!
At this fair there will be samples to taste, cooking classes, and even a photography contest. Last year they had more than 50,000 people attend so be prepared to see everyone and their mother at this one.
