The second bi-annual Haw River Tango Marathon will take place between December 29 and 31, 2017 in the magical rural setting of Saxapahaw, North Carolina. Just a stone's throw from Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh, and situated within the greater North Carolina Piedmont region, the former mill-town of Saxapahaw has become home to a southern Renaissance of music, art and local farming and food.

The Haw River Tango Marathon will be hosted within the historic and beautifully refurbished Haw River Ballroom, which sits on the banks of the Haw River. Within walking distance, guests will find a cozy English-style pub, a bakery, a local butchery, a brewery with a tasting room, a general store, a café and beautiful trails along the Haw River for walking and relaxation. Food will be catered by deliciously creative local food businesses.

And if that was not enough, here is the surprise this year: we are teaming up with our local tango queen, Jae Youn to offer on top of the Marathon experience her legendary New Years Eve Milonga in downtown Durham on Sunday December 31st evening! That's right, on Sunday night we will move the party to an amazing venue right in downtown Durham, where the city pulse is going, the Living Arts Collective, for a long-full night of tango celebration and, off course, with Jae's famous New Year diner!
And all of these offerings in one single pass, this is the magic of community collaboration!

The Haw River Tango Marathon and the Utopia News Year's Eve will feature five DJs from up and down the East coast and Canada.

Please join us this holiday season for more than 30 hours of Argentine Tango with delicious local food, exciting DJs, beautiful scenery and more than a little southern hospitality.

Nearest airports are RDU ( Raleigh-Durham International Airport) and Piedmont Triad International Airport. Easy to access for all majors cities in the US and Canada!

The Haw River Tango Marathon is a fundraiser for Culture Mill, non-profit arts organization based in Saxapahaw. Culture Mill is a Performing Arts Laboratory intertwining the creation of original performances with artists residencies, education program, community engagement and outreach.
