National Harvest Festival

The National Harvest Festival is one of the most famous worldwide celebrations, the second most important harvest celebration in the world after Thanksgiving Day, according to National Geographic.  It is an event where local people pay tribute to the wine production and its work. Celebrations start in January each year in the 18 districts of the Province of Mendoza, each one with its own characteristics. A series of events take place around this celebration. It starts on the last week of February, until the main ceremony is celebrated on the first weekend of March, at the Frank Romero Day Greek Theater. This show brings together more than 1000 artists on stage with scenes in different dimensions where the traditional folk music gains prominence as the origin of a culture built together with creoles and immigrants who work the land to get the fruit of the new wine. The close with flourish is given by the election of the National Harvest Queen at the end of the show, who will represent the province throughout the year.
