The Portland tango festival goes local

Since we are just coming out of Covid19, the Festival this year will be a bit smaller and with local celebrities.

Let us go back dancing together and rekindle our community with a nice intimate and safe Tango Festival.

Participants will need to show their vaccination card.

As always the Portland tango community will welcome visiting dancers .
