A week of world-class workshops, immersion courses, shows and milongas.

Welcome to the 18th year of the New Zealand Tango Festival! Registration is open!.

We are very excited to present a wonderful programme filled with international masters, performances, special guests, and a few surprises packed into every moment of the seven day programme.

The festival week starts with intensive courses run by our international masters, held in the heart of the city, within walking distance from the festival hotel, with milongas every night, and the cafe district of Wellington right outside your door.

Thursday 4th of July is the start of the main festival event, with registration open from 7:30 pm at the Comfort and Quality Hotel, and the Welcome Milonga at Te Whaea starting at 8 pm.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday are filled with workshops all day and dancing all evening. The main performances are on Friday and Saturday nights.

To consolidate your learning, your friendships and completely wear out your shoes, you need to stay on for another intensive course, after the festival....dance the nights away, and melt back to your home, finally replete.
