Buenos Aires
The only place to see polo played at the highest level in the world.  This extraordinary sporting event takes place over 4 weekends, with only 8 teams taking part. Each team plays once each weekend, and so any weekend ticket will guarantee that you see all of the top players in action. Not just for polo lovers, go along to people watch!

National Rodeo and Folkloric Music Festival   January 8th - January 17th, 2010
Jesus Maria (approx 1hr from the Estancia)
This festival combines two of the gauchos biggest loves – horses and music. The national rodeo championships are combined with the best in Argentine folklore music at this annual spectacle. In addition to the scheduled events there is a large fair outside of the arena selling all sorts of local goods. If you are staying at the Estancia this week we take guests down one evening for supper and to watch the rodeo.

Folklore Music Festival   Last week in January
Cosquin, Cordoba (approx 2hrs from the Estancia)

Dia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria   February 2nd, 2010
La Estancita, the local church
This very local and rural event is a celebration to the Virgin Mary. A mass is followed by a procession, carrying a statue of the Virgin Mary, with both followers on foot and a gaucho cavalcade on horseback. As part of the local community, we always attends this ceremonial day, arriving by horseback, and allows guests to witness a truly unique local celebration.  You don't have to be religious to enjoy this wonderful event that brings the town together! 

The ‘Yerra’ or cattle branding   First weekend of March (subject to change)
Estancia
Los Potreros
Estancia Los Potreros is one of the increasingly few estancias in Argentina that still carries out the annual cattle branding in traditional style. Taking place over a full weekend, this a true community event where local gauchos gather to show-off their prowess in the corrals, lassoing the young stock for branding in preparation for the sales.
