World Accordion and Tango Festival

Single tickets for our big World Accordion and Tango Festival are now on sale!!! We have also extended the festival package purchase until
Nov 9! 

As part of our festival, this year we are hosting the 68th Trophee Mondial, World Accordion Championships, first ever in Canada. It's similar to the Coupe Mondial (hosted in Victoria in 2013) but this one has more categories and offers more variety in the program. All events are listed on our website where you will find it in a separate tab, under the Schedule.
All tickets related info you can find under the Tickets tab. They can be also purchased online, or at the listed outlets.   

This is going to be once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch and listen to some of the world's best performers, and to participate in the world-class events, here in beautiful Victoria. For those of you coming from out-of-town, there are still some rooms available in the designated hotels. That info is also available on our website. Room rates are $99 CAD per night!!!

If you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to e-mail at or call 250 880 8282.
