Coconut Grove, Miami, Florida is set for Saturday, May 16th, 2020 at Elizabeth Virrick Park. This Signature Festival and Parade is celebrating 39 Years and starts near McDonald Street then leads down Grand Avenue to Hibiscus Street then to The Festival Park. This extremely amazing cultural event is a celebration of the legacy of a Bahamian-rooted community known as Coconut Grove. This is also the perfect time, not forget that the Bahamas still needs our help after Hurricane Dorian's devastation. The Coconut Grove Bahamian Goombay Festival is an event that involves a colorful JUNKANOO GOOMBAY parade.

This upcoming Festival begins with a Parade which includes a Junkanoo-Band with Drums, Bells and Whistles, Junkanoo Colorful Costumed Dancers, Stilt Walkers, and the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band. The Coconut Grove Bahamian Goombay Festival will also have a series of events leading up to and after the event.
