Everything you need to know about Aqua Girl in South Beach.

Touted as the largest women's week celebration in the country, Aqua Girl is a popular annual fundraiser benefiting South Florida's LGBT community. All proceeds from Aqua Girl benefit the Aqua Foundation for Women, a not-for-profit organization that funds lesbian, bisexual, and transgender wellness and equality in South Florida through grants, scholarships, and initiatives.

Perfect for South Beach, this weekend-long event has everything from parties at hot South Beach nightclubs, a comedy night, star-studded pool and beach parties, a jazz brunch, a rock concert and more.

History of Aqua Girl

In 1999, Alison Burgos and legendary New York producer, Shescape, launched a fun-filled, one-night-only event in South Florida to raise money for breast cancer. This "Sweet Charity" event, which brought together more than 800 women, raised more than $15,000 for Cancer Link and Gilda's Club, two organizations in South Florida that fund breast cancer research, education and family support groups.

Thanks to its success, in 2000, the second installment of this event was renamed "Aqua Girl" and became an entire weekend. This four-day, party weekend fundraiser honors women and all the issues that impact them on a daily basis.

During its inaugural weekend, women from across the globe came to Miami to take part. Currently in its 18th year, this "party with a cause" is now one of the hottest women's festivals, and undeniably the largest charity women's week, in the country.


Every year, this event gets bigger and better. From cocktail receptions and gourmet dinners, to an art exhibit and pool parties, this weekend promises a little something for everyone.

Look forward to events like the kick-off "Traffic Jam Dance Party," the daytime "Splash Pool Party," the "Barely Legal Prom Dance Party," VIP cocktail receptions, the "Fuego + Ice Dance Party," the "Evolution Pool Party." The most popular event of the weekend, the "Aqualicious Pool Party," has live DJs, go-go dancers, and thousands of women partying poolside.

At these events, you'll find a bevy of top hosts, DJs and performers that keep the party going. Performers have included: DJ Citizen Jane, DJ Pat Pat, DJ Illexxandra, DJ Dan Slater, Rose Garcia, Angel Emilio, Jennie Delgado, Charlotte Glasser, DJ Mo, DJ Zenho, DJ AJ Reddy and more.


At Aqua Girl, you can buy your tickets for individual events or as multi-event passes. The most economical way to enjoy the whole weekend is to buy a weekend pass, or if you're staying at the hotel itself, a Hotel Guest Pass.
