030tango is open to cooperate with your event too. Just get in contact with us, so we can talk about details.
To add your event to the 030tango calendar, you can use our event submission form. This way we have all information we need to add your event and make it more visible to all tango dancers out there.
The 030tango event calendar will stay free for organizers and we also will not add advertisment in the future.
The difference between a tango festival and a marathon is mainly, that on most marathons you don't take classes, have performances or live music.
While some organizers tend to deviate from the established formats, if you go to an event named festival or marathon you can normally expect these things:
Festival: It usually goes over the weekend. Often times a tango festival even starts on Thursdays (or before) and includes the Sunday night. You can expect shows at the nightly milongas and classes by maestros during the days. Many bigger festivals include live music at their night milongas on at least one night.
Marathon: The "classic" marathon format happens from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. The guests often times want to maximize their dancing time, you will rarely find any classes or performances. At a lot of tango marathons there will be food served during the whole day. This makes it easier to socialize and creates an all included event.
