Buenos Aires Events
There’s always something going on in Buenos Aires. Except in January. Almost nothing happens then as everyone relocates to the beach. But anyway. There are a lot of events to be enjoyed in BA year round. And if you’re here in January, at least you have the city to yourself!
If you know of an upcoming event, such as a music festival, important soccer game, gallery opening, special nightclub event, 2 for 1 entry at your local barrio’s bingo hall (kind of half joking there), then please contact us to let us know so we can add it to this page.

The first annual Buenos Aires Pillow fight took place in 2006, and we were there to report on this flashmob event attended by around 3,000 people, with lots of cool photos and videos to document the fun.
The ‘Hipodromo Argentino’ in Palermo is Argentina’s main racetrack. Take in a horse race on a Monday afternoon or experience the ‘Gran Premio Nacional,’ the Argentine Derby once a year in mid-November.
