Easter Weekend in Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

Hi all- I will be in Buenos Aires over Easter weekend, arriving the morning of Good Friday and departing that Monday... what can I expect to be closed on Easter Sunday? Will cafes/restaurants remain open? I'm not that into shopping, so if shops are closed, it won't matter much to me. I would very much like to see the San Telmo antique market though... will that be operating? How about on Good Friday? I want to plan my activities there around potential holiday closures.

Related question: I understand there will be a procession Friday night, along Avenue de Mayo, is that correct? Any tips on where to be along the route, and what time to be there? Any other interesting Easter traditions and/or events I should experience?

Thanks in advance!
