We are very thankful for all the dancers, instructors and volunteers that made this years Tucson Tango Festival a great success. The new venue, Casino Del Sol was a huge hit. Casino Del Sol is a 4 star destination resort that provides a great atmosphere for the festival. We look forward to a great event in 2019 and welcoming you to the Sonoran Desert next spring. Lorayne and Jim Baker WHAT IS CHANGING FOR THE 2019 TUCSON TANGO FESTIVAL? The Tucson Tango Festival will again be the second weekend of March for 2018, March 7-10. Room rates are: 119 for all nights. The 119 rate is extended to three days before and three days after the event so take a week off from the cold and enjoy spring in the Tucson desert. All rates are for up to 4 people. You will have to be registered for the festival to reserve a room. We had many people have to stay off site last year while having 20 rooms a night not be utilized because of late room cancellations by people that never registered for the festival. Answers to Questions and some fun facts: 1) Is the smoke bad? I am very sensitive to smoke and yes in the casino proper it is like all casinos. They have a great system for removing it but you still know it is there. We did not sense it at all in any restaurants but they do allow smoking in the bars. We will have taken over a huge amount of the hotel so this will help. You can walk from the hotel rooms, the pool, the parking garage and the ballroom with a very minimal, or no time, in the edge of the casino. 2) How is parking? Lots of it and all free. 3) Resort fees, WiFi fees? None of the above. There is a 10% occupancy fee so it is easy to calculate exactly what your bill will be. 4) How is the ballroom? The ballroom is spacious, high ceilings and very elegant. Absolutely no smoking in that entire part of the complex. This does not mean we have to use all the space and we will be keeping the festivals intimate feel. 5) How are the rooms? 4 star, elegant and a fridge in every room. NO SMOKING in any sleeping rooms. 6) How about transportation? The Arizona Stagecoach and UBER are both good options for getting out to the resort. Because there is no parking fee you may also want to just rent a little car at the airport so you can tour the Old Pueblo at your whim.
