Lamb National Festival in Puerto Madryn

This is a gastronomic event: Patagonian lamb becomes the main attraction in a singular festival.

For years, the Patagonian Lamb National Festival has been held in the City of Puerto Madryn. All visitors immediately become tasters of this delicious banquet that has made Patagonia famous worldwide.

The first issue of this celebration took place in 1977 and Claudia Caballero (from the neighboring District of Rawson) was chosen queen. A year later, the festival went national and the elected queen was Vivian Elizabeth Thomas, from the City of Trelew. Back then, she was the First Lamb National Queen.

Ever since and until 2001, various issues were held but it was not until after 2007 that the festival started to be celebrated without interruptions. This happened when it began to be organized by the Municipality of Puerto Madryn, with the support of local institutions.
