Welcome to the 20th year of the New Zealand Tango Festival!

We are looking forward to bringing you 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 Two-Day 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.


Is the start of the main festival event, with 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.

Monday, Tuesday Post Festival Weekend

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