The Marathon

Transylvania Tango Fest/Marathon by Tango Brașov ®

The first and the most long-lasting annual international Argentine Tango event in Romania, connecting tango hearts since 2008!

We’re happy to welcome you at the 14th edition, with a bit of extra joy this year, since the marathon will last 5 days: 3-7 August 2023.

We’ve prepared our landmark events and, of course, a few surprises.

Guerilla Milongas

It has always been one of the main attractions of our marathon: dancing outdoors, in the center of the city, with wonderful surroundings, beautiful weather (even if that means a magic summer rain sometimes) and, of course, tango music.

In Romania, the concept of Guerilla Milonga was introduced for the first time by Tango Brașov ®, in 2009 at the second edition of the international Argentine tango festival – Transylvania Tango Fest (TTF), in Brasov.

Tango Cafe

Relaxing indoor day milongas, Tango Cafes are the perfect occasion to enjoy an after-lunch coffee in tango ambience, to dance and connect with each other.

Night Milongas

The atmosphere of the Night Milongas is unmistakably one of the most magical in the marathon. We dance until dawn on the beautiful tandas chosen by our already very appreciated TDJs.
