Calle Ocho Festival

Multicultural/Heritage

The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana invites visitors from around the globe to the largest Hispanic street festival in the Southeastern United States during the Annual Calle Ocho Festival. More than one million event-goers join the internationally renowned block party to celebrate Hispanic cultures from around the world on Miami’s legendary Calle Ocho (8th street.)

It's the largest street festival in Miami and it takes place along 8th Street from 8th Avenue to SW 27th Avenue, which are closed down to traffic for the event. Couples dance salsa on the street, performers and musicians give back to the community with their talents while rocking the 12 stages set up on the streets. Miami's Latin community comes out loud and proud, waving their country's flags and wearing other patriotic garb. Listen to the beats of merengue, reggeaton, bachata, balada, hip hop, rap, jazz and more all in one day!

Like any good street fair, one of the main attractions is the food. Get a taste of the cultures of home cooked Latin American and Caribbean delicacies. There are demonstrations of traditional dance and stands selling folkloric artwork throughout the festival.

Calle Ocho Festival is made possible by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana, which was founded in 1975 and has grown into a major service organization in Miami that reaches the lives of many underserved children each year. Carnaval is a party for a good cause. Some of their recent initiatives include granting internet access to families in need and expanding educational programming.
