  • Visit the mataderos fair offers you an excellent opportunity to spend almost as a day camp but in the federal capital, only 20 minutes from the obelisco. At the corner where the fair is focused is a square and an old building that resembles a village lost in the interior of any province. A scenario where folklore shows are presented arms, gauchos are riding, and food stalls with sale of asado, locro, empanadas and all kinds of local food are. To this is added a fairly traditional handicraft fair but who cannot be absent in this place. In short, is an excellent opportunity to spend a different day without having to travel lejors!

  • The Mataderos Fair features traditional argentine foods, it showcases folkloric dances and music, and offers people (mainly tourists) a chance to see/buy crafts made by local artisans(anything from dulce de leche, to liquers,knits, leather goods, statuettes etc). It does get especially crowded on the weekends, but thats when all the special events take place.
  • Super cultural and fun fair. People dance, sing, and just have a good time. There's food and many vendors. You'll see a lot of the same, but there are also unique arts for fair prices. The MC is very spirited

  • Nice place to visit on Sundays very popular place in Buenos Aires
  • Cool an authentic place to visit in Buenos Aires
