About

Hamburg Balboa Festival will take place for the first time in 2020 executed by Hamburg Balboa GbR.


There will be a variety of activities, the focus of the event is set on the parties though. During the day you can join our social activities including Balboa in the streets to a live Band (Saturday afternoon) or make your own tourist program.

Download your personal Hamburg guide here ! (Edition 2019).

If you wish to save money, don’t hesitate to ask for volunteering (door, others) in exchange for drink tickets.

Tickets are limited, as the locations have limited space. So make sure to book your ticket early enough!


Hosting: We will try to host as many dancers as possible, but we cannot promise to host everyone. Alternatively make a post in the facebook event page to ask for private hosting. Also please check out the cheap hostels or fancy hotels in Hamburg.


Mix and Match (dance contest) on Saturday, Prelims 9.30pm, Finals in between the band sets. All participants will pay a starters fee of 10€. There will be a nice price for the winning couple. All levels welcome!
