Our Vendors


Kiosco - Convenience Store

To make it easier to get the last minute stuff you were not able to purchase while getting to class or to the milongas, we created a convenience store within the Norse Hall.

The store features great freshly made sandwiches and salads from the F&B Cafe for your lunch on the fly between classes.

Soft drinks of any kind and munchies to quiet rumble stomachs while trying to get those steps you wanted so much to learn will be on sale!

Napkins, band aids, pens and our feature T-Shirt to remind you that Portland is a cool place to be and the Festival an event to revisit in the future, will be availble at the Kiosko place, the coolest place in town!

Tango Shoes by JuliaBella

JuliaBella is based in Washington, DC, and has expanded to include location in  San Francisco, offering Comme il Faut, SUR at tango festivals across North America. 

Julia prides her team on its special skill of finding that unique pair for every woman. JuliaBella's oldest client so far is 75 years old, and is amazed at how well she can dance in her 3-inch stilettos, thanks to Comme il Faut's outstanding structure and craftsmanship. JuliaBella boasts a large number of repeat customers, some beyond the dance world. Many women become addicted to the brands and the expert service they receive, and even after 10-hour office days and long nights out, they swear by the killer stilettos that feel like slippers.

JuliaBella was featured in the Fall 2008 issue of Culture & Leisure Magazine, and Comme il Faut shoes made Top 10 Readers' Fashion Picks in the magazine's special 10th anniversary edition (September 2009). In addition to her growing business, Julia continues supporting the art of Argentine tango, and is proud to promote it in the US. In 2009, she co-founded the not-for-profit organization Tango Element, which is dedicated to bringing various tango programs to the American people.  JuliaBella is a proud sponsor of annual Tango Element Tango Festivals in Baltimore, MD.

Mr Tango Shoes is ….

Mr Tango Shoes is a brand by renowned tango dancer Jorge Nel. Hard leather-soled shoes featuring unique and fashionable styles. Popular among Argentine Tango dancers.

Jorge Nel knows tango and knows how to make a shoe for dancers, for very particular requirements. Most importantly, he knows how to make shoes that are comfortable but also flexible and durable, and at a fair price. He thinks that the comfort level is definitely one of the thing that sets Mr Tango Shoes aside.
