Carnaval Miami 2015

Carnaval Miami

Carnaval Miami has been celebrated here for 37 years, and this year the most renowned event, the Calle Ocho Festival, will be held March 15th from 11am-7pm.
Carnaval is a series of cultural events that includes Carnaval on the Mile (Coral Gables Latin Jazz festival- March 7-8, 10am-10pm), the Calle Ocho celebration (March 15, 11am-7pm), a beauty pageant for the crowning of Miss Carnaval, a cooking contest (March 5, 6pm), 10k run, Golf Classic (March 12, 12pm), and soccer (March 21, 9am-5pm) and domino tournaments (March 11).

Calle Ocho is a vibrant, Latin street festival, the largest in the country, and has been bringing the community together since Carnaval began, 38 years ago. The festival is held in Little Havana, where couples will dance salsa in the streets and musicians rock the stages, performing meringue, reggaeton, bachata, hip hop, rap, jazz, and more!

The city blocks are packed with 12 stages, showcasing tons of musicians and demonstrating traditional dances.Chino & Nacho, the Latin Grammy-award winning duo, will be headlining as the Kings of Carnaval Miami 2015. Coca-Cola is sponsoring and will be having contests for local, up-and-coming artists to perform live and for the finale for their teen dance contest, Comparte El Movemiento, on the Coca-Cola Music Stage.

There is much entertainment, but what really draws the crowds is the food, and partiers can taste the different cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean.
