To mark the occasion of the fair a programme of festive events has been prepared, this includes passacaglia, musical shows and street entertainment, concerts, a contest of cornet and drum bands, pyrotechnical shows, dances, cutters' contests or roast pig tasting and barbequed fresh sausage tasting.

There will also be re-enactments of the traditional slaughtering season, the International Brotherhood of Rice will be offering tastings of Arroz de Matanza (Slaughtering Season Rice) and there will also be a tourist marquee set up with the name of The Tunnel of Sensations.
