From exciting reveals to thrilling test drives, hit the road to Miami Beach for Miami International Auto Show 2021.

One of the largest shows of its kind in America and a cornerstone of Miami car culture, The Miami International Auto Show returns just in time for its 50th anniversary October 16-24. The exhibition will cover over a million square feet at the Miami Beach Convention Center, bringing with it hundreds of new cars, trucks, SUVs, electric vehicles and crossovers. The show will also offer a number of “Ride and Drives,” where attendees can strap into their favorite car and take it for a spin.

The show began in 1971 and is sponsored by the South Florida Automobile Dealers Association. Over the show’s 50 years, it has raised over $7 million for local charities, most recently raising $400,000 for longtime partner the Ronald McDonald House.

Miami International Auto Show Presenters

The Miami International Auto Show traditionally draws around 300,000 attendees over its run, as well as automakers, classic car clubs and automobile enthusiasts from around the world. This year’s confirmed exhibitors include Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Jeep, Kia, Lexus, Lincoln, Nissan, Ram, Subaru and Toyota.

Things to Do: From Classic Rides to Test Drives

In addition to perusing the new offerings from nearly 200 dealers across South Florida, you’ll be able to participate in a number of interactive experiences and see some classic cars that look straight out of a museum.

First, Camp Jeep will once again set up just outside the convention center’s entrance. The massively popular 25,000-square foot installation is a sort of roller coaster of off-road tests for Jeep vehicles, full of drops, climbs, inversions and obstacles. A lap around takes a little over five minutes and is as close to taking a Jeep through the mountains as you’ll get in Greater Miami.

Inside the convention center, Memory Lane is a sprawling display of vintage cars and other must-see vehicles. Previous vehicles on display have included a 1981 DeLorean, a 1972 Chevy Corvette Roadster and a 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.

Also returning for 2021 are the ever-popular Ride and Drive experiences, where automakers line up their latest models on the streets of Miami Beach and let attendees take them for a spin. The mass test drive event will run the entire duration of the show and feature several of the attending manufacturers.

The Big Unveilings

In previous years, the show has seen the debut of such iconic cars as the Cadillac Escalade, the Jaguar XJ and the Ford Excursion. Short-lived value brand Saturn even debuted here in 1990. This year’s show will be no exception, as it will see the debut of the 2023 Nissan Z as well as the Florida debut of the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross. More may be announced as the show draws closer.

Miami International Auto Show Parking

Limited valet parking is available at the convention center on a first come, first-served basis for $30. There is also a municipal garage just across 17th St. for $2 an hour, with a maximum daily rate of $20. Miami Beach has other city lots and garages nearby; you can see a full convention center parking map before you go.

COVID-19 Protocols

As with any large event, the Miami International Auto Show’s COVID-19 edition will look a little bit different. First, the show will have no physical box office, as all ticketing will be done online. Visitors will also find plexiglass dividers at all ticket-scanning stations and customer service centers.

Exhibitor booths and traffic flow will be spaced to encourage social distancing. And though masks will not be required, the show will adhere to all PPE guidelines set out by local authorities and the convention center.

The excitement takes place at Miami Beach Convention Center October 16-24, 2021. Hours vary by day. Admission for adults is $13; children’s admission is $6.
