The countdown to Miami Carnival 2019 is underway. Preparation is the key to a memorable weekend, whether on the frontline playing mas with a hype band or just joining the fun as a spectator. Get the fannie packs, glitter and fishnets ready for Miami Carnival Weekend. It’s all about parades, concerts, yacht parties, club parties and foam parties (don’t forget the swimsuit). Here are ten events to check out during Miami Carnival Weekend.

This is the official parade happening during Miami Carnival! Over 20 masquerade bands, Caribbean food vendors, arts & crafts village, corporate village and LIVE music concert.

Cups in hand, joy exudes from every band playing mas. Dance alongside the parade with friends or family. The parade is kid-friendly and children under 12 are free! Dress up a little or a lot – there won’t be a dry piece of clothing by the end of this shindig. Sweat and fun are mandatory. The parade begins at 11am and ends at 11pm. The concert kicks off at 3pm and keeps the crowd live until 11pm. Want more Carnival all weekend-long? Miami Carnival has more here.

PARTIES ON THE WATER

Water is a prerequisite when visiting Miami. Do the sunny beaches in style with these yacht cruise parties. Get the black maxi dress or the white linen suit ready for an evening under the stars with the high pumping beats of soca, reggae and afrobeats. Both of these events are happening on the luxurious South Beach Lady and departing from Bayfront Park. Never been to Bayfront Park? Come early to park and peruse the restaurants and shops before boarding.
