Sunshine Coast Mini Tango Marathon

11-13 June, 2021.

Sunshine Coast Mini Tango Marathon

The proceeds from our Sunshine Coast Tango Festival (Marathon) each year go to the charity Para Los NiƱos which helps support underprivileged children in Argentina.

Due to COVID, I have decided not to have any workshops this year. It is too uncertain to have Renee & Doni here so with their consent, it will be a music only Festival, I mean, Marathon. And I have called it a Mini Tango Marathon because it won’t be running as late as they normally do and there will be live music on Saturday night.

The Venues will be close to cafes and restaurants and hotels so you can eat and drink at your leisure and Sunday’s venue, Pier 33, is really special!

Venues

The Venues will vary due to the temporary closure of Maroochydore Community Centre. Please check each event for venue details.
