What started in 1978 by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana as an event to share the Cuban culture in Miami has become the virtual Pan-American showcase it is today.
CARNAVAL MIAMI is a two-week festival that draws close to ONE MILLION residents and tourists to the Miami area; it is celebrated each month of March with events that include concerts, footraces, culinary competitions, galas, a weekend of art & jazz, and the nation’s largest street festival.
CARNAVAL MIAMI takes place in the heart of the Magic City, known for its diverse culture and ethnic groups. Miami is considered the Gateway to the Americas and recognized worldwide as an international hub where people work, live and play.
Come for the Hispanic food, concerts, sports, culinary competitions, a live Jazz festival, art, and dancing (especially salsa en la Calle Ocho Festival) for the enjoyment of residents and tourists alike.
