Our gorgeous and multi-faceted venue will allow us to incorporate many new activities into the festival schedule, including:
** Outdoor Garden Milongas in the evenings in a beautiful courtyard, on a professional-grade dance floor.
** Extended milongas (until 3 and 4 am, respectively) on Friday & Saturday nights, in an exquisite, 19th century ballroom.
** Lots of on-site food options, including a catered dinner Friday night, Kiya's Cafe (run by Chef Rukiya Jamison), serving Argentine light bites and coffee from Friday through Sunday, and a barbeque (run by Ole Tapas Lounge) during a Garden Milonga on Sunday evening.
** A late-night alternative milonga in a historic & beautiful library.
