The Midwest Tango Festival is about promoting social Argentine tango within the Midwest, introducing Argentine artist resources that are not readily available to smaller communities, and promoting the communities within the Midwest to the rest of the United States and beyond. Our mission includes presenting all our Argentine artists to these hidden community gems so they can share their knowledge and the spirit of tango with them. Because we are not based solely in one city, we try to highlight the host city to encourage other dancers from all over to visit and check out what the city itself has to offer. When we find a host city, we like to find venues that highlight the city's history or arts. If we can find non-profit organizations that support the arts, we try to work with these organizations and use them as venues for the milongas. In doing this festival, we feel that communities that may be overlooked because of their location in the Midwest have a chance to develop and grow, and the people who normally wouldn't consider visiting these places are given an opportunity to experience another Midwest tango community and it's hospitality, as well as tour a city they may not have considered touring before.
