The Grape Harvest Festival is a celebration that must be experienced in order to understand its significance. The election of the district queens begins much earlier and lets each sovereign candidate dazzle their city so that people will choose them as their representative in the most important festival, the one held in the capital of the province.
Traditionally, the Fruit Blessing event is many times held in the wineries and it comes to light in order to open the festival. Afterwards, the Queens White Way follows and the Carousel during the day. Everything ends at night in the central act of the festival at the Greek Theater, a natural amphitheater that summons thousands of people during three nights to celebrate and thank for the show and the beauty of everything that is taking place there.
Declared a national festivity, the Grape Harvest Festival is a show for everybody.
People and Characters
Besides the queens, nobody misses the grape harvest festival. There are characters such as Pepe-Pato, who joined the celebrations years ago and has already become a popular classic. Just like him, hundreds wish to leave their mark in this unique festivity.
