August 12th to 14th | Brisbane

Bask in the warmth of the first Moonlight Tango Winter Festival in Brisbane on the weekend of 12-14th August 2022. An unforgettable celebration of tango culture with 3 milongas in the Brisbane City Hall and our After Party Milonga at the beautiful Argentinean Evita Restaurant.

Be swept away by live tango music with exclusive performances by the Brisbane Tango Orquesta at the Gala Milonga. Our signature live music cortinas will feature at our After Party. Beloved Australian DJs - Jose (Melbourne), Anthony (Sydney) and Wendy (Brisbane) – will keep you dancing all night.  Tango performances and workshops from internationally recognised teachers, Rina and Nadim Sawaya (Melbourne) &  Jose and May (Brisbane).

Come a day early for special tango classes by Brisbane maestros Rosemary and Greg (E-Tango, Brisbane). Dance and socialise with friends from around Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

We have specifically selected to help promote and fundraise for Parkinson's Queensland due to the known health benefits of dancing for Parkinson's disease.
