Maleny Tango Festival - 2018 details coming soon...
About the weekend: Nestled among tranquil green hills of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the historic village-like town of Maleny will host, for the third consecutive year, a weekend of Argentine Tango.
All events will be at the Main Hall, with its spacious large floor and great acoustics, of the Maleny Community Centre
New Events! We are pleased to announce that the acclaimed Mendoza Quartet will be a major feature at the festival. They will be delighting us with their totally danceable music at Saturday’s “Golden Age” Milonga. In addition, there will be a “Q&A” style discussion on Sunday on “Argentine Tango: a musician’s perspective”.
Furthermore, for those who arrive on Friday evening, there is a special Tapas and Tango night at Sarah’s Unplugged . This restaurant is a reincarnation of the Upfront Club, where tango in Maleny started.
The Maleny festival is all about tango: dance all day, dress up for the evening Golden Age of Tango Milonga, soothe your weary body with a massage and yoga class…and then dance some more.
For foodies, greenies and shopaholics: Maleny has you covered. This town has been the hub of healthy living and environmental awareness forever. We suggest you come early and explore this enchanting area of Queensland.
