Every year in mid-March, Miami’s “Little Havana” district is given over to a huge street party celebrating Latino culture, music, and dance. Stages on the streets showcase salsa, merengue, reggaeton, and jazz, and tempting smells of tamales and arepas waft from sizzling stalls. There are cook-offs, sporting events, and a popular domino tournament.
A marquee event of Carnaval Miami, Calle Ocho Music Festival is the world’s largest Latin music festival in the nation. Stroll through 15 street blocks of Little Havana filled with musical stages, international food, sampling sites, folkloric dances and entertainment for all families + friends to enjoy.
