La Laguna Cattle Fair 2022

The Livestock Fair of La Laguna returns as part of the San Benito festivities. An important date, which reaches its 43rd edition after two years without being able to meet due to the pandemic.

Despite this parenthesis, the commitment of the City Council of La Laguna with the livestock sector has remained firm during this time, through direct subsidies and aid to native breeds to face the consequences of the pandemic and maintain activity. A commitment that leads us to promote this Fair with a larger budget and more activities for all audiences, showing the potential of the livestock sector for sustainable and high quality food production.

There are various activities in the program (PDF) over three days, but the Livestock or Cattle Fair takes place on Sunday, 17 July 2022 at the Casa del Ganadero38206, Av. de San Diego, 74, 38208 La Laguna

The animals will arrive between 7 and 10 am and the participation of about 200 heads of cattle and 400 sheep, goats, horses and donkeys, are expected.
