"La Gran Milonga Nacional", an open air event with live orchestras and street tango dancing on Avenida de Mayo, will take place this year on Saturday, December 17th, 2011.
The celebration, which every year occupies that traditional Avenida de Mayo from Plaza de Mayo to 9 de Julio Av. is organized by the National Tango Academy and the Association of Promoters of Tourism, Hotel Business and Gastronomy (APTHGRA).
La Gran Milonga Nacional will start at 8:00 pm, with three central stages in the corners of Avenida de Mayo and Bernardo de Irigoyen, Piedras and Perú, and other smaller ones along the avenue, and the audience will be able to dance on the street to the music of live orchestras and singers.

  2. Hi Mary
    At the moment I don't know of any similar events in February. There are summer cultural programs organized by the city's government, and last year there were some Tango events included, so probably there will be an event you can attend. Keep checking on my website for any news, I will post about it as soon as the information is released.

  3. Thank you, Sandra. I will keep checking.
