One of New York City’s Great Milongas
VolvoTango is an outdoor milonga of Argentine Tango at the end of Pier 45 in the West Village. It happens on fair-weather Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
It’s mostly a Spring-Summer-Fall milonga, but it even happens when we have warm days in Winter. In 2017, VolvoTango ran regularly until mid-November.
VolvoTango starts as early as 1 pm and as late as 6 pm, depending on the season. Confirm the time on the day of the milonga at www.volvotango.com

VolvoTango is a Free Milonga, but…
It’s free, or rather a pay-what-you-wish event. Most milongas charge $12-15 a person. Do support Steve, the organizer. He has been doing this for years.
Check the schedule at VolvoTango.com. Steve usually posts the start time on the same day.
