SIGNATURE THEME EVENTS
Miami’s Caribbean Festival takes place over Columbus Day Weekend and includes music, dance, enchanting costumes and rhythmic drumming. Guests from across the Caribbean fly in to take part in the parades and new competitions for decorative floats and fancy dress are added each year.
A 6-mile parade of 20 masquerade bands kicks off on October 9 with lots of beads, feathers and a dazzling array of colors. Steel Bands also compete in “Panorama,” a championship match featuring musicians from across the globe. Also filling the streets with a calypso beat, Music Trucks roll slowly through Miami Gardens filled with racks of speakers, DJs and feathered dancers. Finally Sun Life Stadium hosts the “Band of the Year” competition where the judges finally bestow the Carnival Crown!
This Caribbean cultural experience and spectacular riotous blend of colors, pageantry and fantasy, is depicted through a kaleidoscope of incredible costumes, steel bands, calypso, soca and konpa music. The annual event attracts over 100,000 people from throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to the South Florida area.
