The Festival International de Tango de Montréal - FITM was created in 2003. One of the main objectives of the FITM is to offer to the city of Montreal a cultural event of significant influence and impact.
Each year, the FITM presents music of the highest quality performed by musicians from Argentina as well as from Quebec. Many free concerts are offered outdoors and are open to the public at large. The orchestras also present concerts during milongas (dance evenings with live music) and in renowned theatres. The FITM offers, apart from the concerts section, an intensive dance training program with workshops for beginners and dancers of all levels with guest masters.
