The Fine Fruit Festival in the tiny town of El Hoyo, Argentina, lets visitors into small-town life in Patagonia.

EL FESTIVAL de la Fruta Fina is a three-day event in itsy-bitsy El Hoyo (pop. 6,000), Argentina. It’s one of several regional events over the summer (including the Festival de Asado in nearby Cholila, and the Festival de Lupulo in El Bolsón) that celebrate the region’s culinary traditions and local culture. These festivals are a great way to meet local artisans and farmers who are typically working up in their farms or “chacras” and not in town.
