March in Miami is madness - we have so much going on around the city, like the 21st Carnaval on The Mile. In fact, it's such a popular annual Carnaval that Miami will be taken over by this event.
Carnaval on the Mile is the ultimate festival in Miami that features art, fine cuisine, three concert stages, jazz, and great entertainment. There's so much you can do in two days at this festival but we recommend you come early. The festival starts on March 2nd until March 3rd in Miracle Mile between Le Jeune Rd and Douglas Rd.
The festival is completely FREE and you can bring your dogs as well. Come in comfortable shoes as this festival is a mile long and there's a lot to see. Every year the Carnaval brings the best artists, musicians, and food vendors to celebrate all things Miami. Here is a bucket list of things to do at this year's Carnaval on the Mile.
Get A Unique Miami Bag
Brush Cases has the most colorful bags. You could get a custom Miami-inspired bag during the Carnaval. Anca is a Miami pop artist and you can also get custom work here.
Catch A Live Show
The 'Carnaval' will be hosting live shows the entire weekend. You'll be able to see bands such as School of Rock, The Healers, and Brothers of Others. And Cris Cab will also be playing your favorite song.
Attend the Cordials & Candy After Party
A good carnival ends with a great after party. This one will feature aromatic coffees, fine cigars, sweets, and drinks. It will be hosted at The Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables. You can get your ticket here.
Stop for a beer at Bierhaus
It will get real hot at Carnival on the Mile. Stop and get a big beer at Fritz & Franz Bierhaus. This place has one of the best beers around the mile.
