Experience the best of Miami’s rich Cuban heritage at the Miami Carnival, the culminating event for the Calle Ocho Festival. It’s one of the biggest Hispanic events in the world, with over a million visitors attending to immerse in a crazy fun atmosphere. The event was started by a group of Miami kids who wanted to make a difference in the world. The result? A community impact that no other festival can hold a candle to, with projects that improve kids’ and families’ lives. Proceeds go to the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation, so you can be sure that every dollar you spend goes a long way.
Miami may be famous for its legendary nightlife and stunning beaches, but the people make all the difference.
‘The Miami Carnival is more than just a festival, it’s a week-long celebration with a heart where the passion of the people shine brightly through the music, food, activities, and parties.’
