Gourmet Festival and Horse Racing
The "Gran Premio Nacional" (GI), the oldest and most important race in the Argentine turf, will take place on Saturday, November 12th, 2016, at Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo, Av. Libertador & Dorrego.
On October 5, 1884, the Hipodrómo Argentino de Palermo inaugurated what would become the most important race in the yearly calendar, the Gran Premio Nacional. This great prize is also known as the "Argentine Derby". This outstanding 2500-meter race is very attractive for the public since due to the distance the start is located facing the grandstands. Other classics (GI) are included in the day's schedule: Gran Premio Hipódromo de Palermo and Gran Premio Maipu.
The Great Prize "Gran Premio Nacional" will be the center of a spectacular journey that will start at 11:30 am, and that will include entertainment for the whole family, like a playground for kids, an art exhibition, and a gastronomic fair.
At the same time, the third edition of the gourmet festival “Apetito” will take place on Saturday, November 12th, from 12 pm to 2 am, and will continue on Sunday 13th, from 12 pm to 9 pm.
