There has been an Argentine Festival for over 29 years now. It is the creation of the charming Daniel Manzoni who has dedicated his life to presenting and promoting Argentine culture and food in the nation's capital. Produced at the Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Arlington Virginia, this venerable festival is a showcase for the local culture of the 'southern cone' of Latin America as well as including special invited guests who perform from 5:30 to 10:30 pm indoors and out, rain or shine. The evening is rich with tangos, malambos and zambas, Argentine foods and crafts. A highlight of the region's ethnic festivals, Mr. Manzoni has managed to pique the interest of a wide range of audiences who flock to this event each year.
