  • A Summer picnic in July.
  • Gala Ball, to proclaim the Vice-Queen on November 12th. This event is preceded with a picnic in November, commemorating Ambato’s independence from Spain. However, due to the tragic loss of our 2007 Vice-Queen, the club decided to temporarily abstain from celebrating the event.
