Saturday, June 3, 2023. Music, exhibitors, authentic food are highlights of the popular event, which takes place at Kenmore Middle School. Declared an "Event of Cultural Interest" by the Ministry of Culture of the Argentine Republic, the Festival Argentino USA is an opportunity for the public to experience traditional Argentine culture.
The Festival Argentino USA –which coincides with the Day of the Argentine Soldier and the month of the Flag– is an opportunity for the public to experience the traditions of that nation. By highlighting tango and other rhythms such as the milonga and featuring artisans and vendors of typical food and products, the festival seeks to broaden public understanding and enjoyment of Argentine and Latin American culture. The mix of live music, great food, and fun activities for kids make the festival a perfect family-friendly experience.
The Espíritu Parrillero enterprise will use, on that occasion, firewood in the country barbecue and there will be New York steak or flank steak sandwiches. For its part, Empanadas de Mendoza will be present with its food truck and will offer empanadas, choripán, alfajores, churros and soft drinks. And something extra: a country barbecue demonstration will be held on site by the chef from Argentina Vilma Palvia.
A Consular representative of the Embassy of Argentina to the United States of America, will be at the Annual event to celebrate with us all. Tickets are available online for $20 and (no refunds) include a raffle ticket and free public parking. Entry ticket doubles as a chance to win a round-trip ticket to Latin American by Air Canada and from DC to Argentina’s destination of COPA Airlines.
