It sometimes seems like something new is happening every other week in the Sunshine State and hey, we aren't complaining. It gives us an excuse to get out and do something, but it always stinks when you have multiple fests happening on the same day in different places and we can't manage to hit them all. Thankfully we'll be able to hit up multiple free festivals near Miami, and all in one place.
The Miami Coral Gables Art Fest comes back for a 6th year, looping in 6 additional festivals all centralized in downtown Coral Gables. Whether you want to get your booze & bite on, take your furbaby to a pet fest, admire art, or do something fun with your kids, you'll be able to do it all at the fest they're calling "The Big One".
The jam-packed event will include fine arts, dog & pet, home show, fashion, wine & food, craft brew, & kid festivals, all with their own unique offerings and set up. The best part? 5 of them are free to attend when you register that you're going.
The fine arts fest will feature over 200 arts & crafts exhibitors, giving you a chance to admire the creativity of stellar artists and maybe even head home with a new statement piece.
The dog & pet festival will have you cooing at cute contests, shopping tons of vendors offering new toys & accessories for your fur-ever friend, as well as pet training, demos, vet services and more.
The home show portion will show off unique art & decor options for your home, giving you a chance to purchase items to spice up your space or get your creative juices flowing for that next big home update you have in mind.
The fashion fest will show off cutting edge looks offering a chance to purchase trendy apparel including, jewelry, hats, & more; while the kid's fest will have face painting, crafting activities, and places to purchase toys, games, and other kid-related items.
While most of the places are free to attend, a couple of the festivals require ticket purchases that include generous & unlimited samples.
Early bird tix for the food & wine fest start at $28 for standard admission, or $58 for VIP — which includes a complimentary open bar, unlimited food samples in a VIP area, 3 food cards for vendors outside of the VIP area, access to a private VIP tent with over 200 brands of fine wine, spirits, and brews as well as a few surprises the festival is keeping secret. They can't give away all the fun after all.
The craft brew event tickets are only $19 and include unlimited samplings of over 100 different brands, as well as additional foods available for purchase.
The entirety of the event will house over 400 different vendors, as well as live music and entertainment to keep this massive party alive. They weren't kidding when they called it the big one!
The Miami Coral Gables Art Festival will take place on February 8th & 9th, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Time to get our bffs & backpacks ready for this mega fest.
