Carnaval Miami Supports Local Families

More than just a festival, Carnaval Miami was created by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana to support the community it celebrates. For that reason, proceeds from Carnaval Miami benefit the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation, which changes children’s lives by funding sports leagues, summer camps, school supplies, college scholarships and offering family assistance.
