 |  Category: Events

A town called Villa General Belgrano in the Córdoba Province , central argentina, has an Oktoberfest that is well-known and the biggest in the country.
This year the National Beer Festival  will took place from the 3rd to the 13th of October and will celebrate the 45° edition, continuing a tradition started in the ’60 by the European immigrants that live in this town, mainly of German origin.  The event has traditionally been held in the Villa General Belgrano town square, Plaza José Hernández and by 1996, it was moved onto the beer garden. Time passed and the beer industry developed remarkably and with it, the Oktoberfest grew and began to summon more than 50,000 people in the latest issues.

But not everything is beer at the Villa General Belgrano Oktoberfest, the Cervecero Park (biergarten) welcomes also several stands with traditional German dishes, such as Frankfurt sausages, the mandatory leber-wurst, smoked pork ribs and the well-known sausages with chucrut. The attendants drink several litres of beer, which are served in giant German mugs. In the afternoons, the simultaneous opening of the beer barrels is carried out. People gather with their mugs up trying to get some of the free spurts of beer. According to tradition, drinking the beer from those barrels is supposed to bring people good luck.
One of the high points of the event is the election of the National Queen of Beer, who is chosen among twenty applicants who have been previously selected in several points all round the country.
