Festa do Gaiterio

The festivities are dedicated to the piper Avelino Cachafeiro, one of the most illustrious Galician pipers in Galicia. El Gaitero de Soutelo was proclaimed the best piper in Galicia in 1924. The event brings together numerous traditional Galician music bands that perform music with traditional dances. The event attracts thousands of people from all over Galicia and Portugal. The origin of the festival dates back to the meetings organised with the students of the bagpipe group of the region of Tabeirós-Terra de Montes. Nowadays, the celebration brings together hundreds of musicians from all over Galicia and from some foreign countries who perform traditional pieces with bagpipes, drums and “pandereta” accompanied by traditional dances in the Praza dos Gaiteiros.
