The Day of Tango Festival, Austin Texas
Join The Academy of Tango – Texas for the third annual “Day of Tango” Festival in Austin, Texas with performances by international Tango champions, local area Tango instructors, professional performers, and musicians!
Proclaimed by the Mayor of Austin, Lee Leffingwell, and recognized by the State of Texas as a momentous event, the Day of Tango has been celebrated in Argentina every year on December 11 since 1965 in honor of the birth dates of the two men responsible for the creation and worldwide promotion of the Tango: Carlos Gardel and Julio De Caro.
After 11 years of successful campaigning by Ben Molar, the country of Argentina formally recognized the Day of Tango on November 29, 1977.
With the approval of La Academia Nacional del Tango de la Republica Argentina, the Academy of Tango-Texas is proud to bring this momentous celebration to Austin for the third year!
