Haw River Tango Marathon

  • The Haw River Ballroom 1711 Saxapahaw-Bethlehem Church Rd. Saxapahaw, NC (map)

The first annual Haw River Tango Marathon will take place between January 1 and 3, 2016 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. Even the New York Times has taken notice of Saxapahaw in recent years.

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.

The Marathon will feature five DJs from up and down the east coast, with catering provided by the Saxapahaw General Store Catering, which has been featured in Gourmet Magazine.

Please join us this winter in sunny North Carolina for nearly 40 hours of Argentine Tango with delicious local food, exciting DJs, beautiful scenery and more than a little southern hospitality.
