It’s that magical time of year again – the 2017 Tango Festival is almost here!
Tango Dancers Performing the Traditional Tango
Visitors from all over the world will flock to Buenos Aires from August 10 through August 23 for the city’s international tango festival.
The annual event is a huge spectacle including two weeks of performances from 600 artists in 42 different venues sprinkled throughout Buenos Aires. Some of the most popular events include free concerts, performances, classes, milongas, and the Mundial de Tango – the world’s most important international tango dance competition. Dancers from all over the world come to Argentina to compete in the traditional salon category and the escenario (stage) category. The prize at stake? A chance to appear in the finals at Luna Park stadium! But no worries if you forget your dance shoes. There’s always a special fair that sells items made by the country’s top best tango clothing specialists.
