A FEW THINGS TO KNOW
Condat-sur-Vienne is a small residential town in the outskirts of Limoges. You will find essential shops such as supermarket, pharmacy, bank, post office or tobacconist and a farmers' market on Saturday morning.
The city is happy to welcome the Limouzi Tango Festival and let the motorhomes park near the festival grounds. Please respect the local residents as much as possible and avoid noise disturbances
when returning from milongas at night.
The event room will be closed during the Limousin buffet, during the demosnstrations but also from 7.30 to 10 pm every day. This time is planned for the instalation of milongas, the cleaning of the rooms and for the volunteers to rest a little bit. It is therefore useless to come before 10 pm because the place will be closed.
The area at the back of festival place will be privatized on Sunday evening between 8 pm and 10 pm for the artists and volunteers "goodbye meal". Thank you for being kind enough to respect this area.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR NEED SOME HELP, DO NOT HESITATE TO GO TO THE FESTIVAL RECEPTION WHERE OUR VOLUNTEERS WILL DO AS MUCH AS THEY CAN TO HELP YOU.
