Summer fun in Vermont is about to get all tangled up in the music of the Tango!
From August 15 – 18, 2019, summer fun in Vermont will be taking it to the dance floor in the tune of Tango. Presented by The Argentine Tango Society, the 2019 Stowe Tango Music Festival is one of the premier festivals of its kind in the entire United States. With their goal to make Stowe, Vermont “The New Capital of Tango”, this event earns more and more renown each and every year since its beginnings in 2014, has become one of the top summer festivals in Stowe. While the notion of Tango festivals in Stowe, a famous outdoorsman’s paradise, may seem to be an awkward fit, you need to swing on by one of the events to understand the reason why Tango is slowly being integrated into our cultural history.
The festival shares this culture of music and dancing in Stowe through a myriad of public events, many which are free of charge! Even the most seasoned aficionado in the field will find new ways to enjoy Tango music and newcomers will feel right at home in the sights and sounds of this Latin persuasion. Starting with the Tango Jam on Thursday night through the final competition and farewell celebration on Sunday, the festival will interweave many unique performances and musical training opportunities.
This year, the highlights include the celebrated list of top Tango dance performers and teachers, from the pairs of Hugo Patyn & Celina Rotundo and Yaisuri Salamanca & John Hernan to Ana Padron & Diego Blaco. Even though dance plays an integral role, the music is where the festival shines and this year the Legends from Argentina that will be coming to the Green Mountain State are Bandoneon legend Nestor Marconi, pianist Pablo Estigarribia and violinist Humberto Ridolfi. They will also join a bevy of other world-class artists and students of the field to form The Stowe Tango Music Festival Orchestra, whose concert at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center is a can’t-miss event each and every year.
Of course, when you’re done get tangled up in all of the music and dancing of the Tango, you will want a comfortable home-away-from-home to return to! Book a room at The Green Mountain Inn to complete your memorable summertime in Stowe getaway in comfort and style in our historic Downtown setting.
