Nonstop fun in the sun. Dancing to DJ beats from day to night. Meeting new friends. And experiencing everything Greater Miami & Miami Beach has to offer. SweetHeat Miami, a popular Pride celebration that was created for women by women, takes over Miami from May 11-16, 2022 for its 14th year. The women-focused festival features 14 events in South Beach, Wynwood, Hialeah and Downtown Miami.

What SweetHeat Miami Is All About

“SweetHeat Miami is unique in that it’s the only continuous party on South Beach catering to women. The atmosphere since its start has always been one of celebration, appreciation and acceptance of what women represent both in their personal lives and as a community,” says Myah Mustafa, AKA DJ Dimples, founder of SweetHeat. “We’re welcoming to all women, and it’s a judgement-free zone where you can let down your hair and have fun.”

Events

SweatHeat Miami includes daytime pool parties, speed dating and exciting nightlife parties filled with food, drinks, DJs, live music and dancing. Marseilles Hotel, an oceanfront Art Deco hotel in South Beach with a pool and private cabanas, is the event’s host hotel.

SweetHeat kicks off with a pre-party on Wednesday night, May 11, at SHOTS nightclub in Wynwood. Another event highlight is a yacht party on Sunday, May 15, where guests will board the Biscayne Lady for a three-hour cruise around Biscayne Bay to see Star Island and other scenic spots. And don’t miss the popular 90s R&B party, where attendees are encouraged to dress up in 90s-themed clothing and dance the night away. The main event of SweetHeat is the White Party, where everyone dresses in white attire for the grand celebration. Details of the schedule are still being finalized, so check the event website frequently.

This year, SweetHeat has added elements of health and wellness to the festival with yoga sessions, fitness classes and sound bowl healing on the lawn of the Marseilles Hotel. Attendees can also wander the SweatHeat market, where vendors will be selling clothing, books and artisanal products.

There is a give-back event on Sunday, May 15, where the organization will gather clothing and other necessities to give to the homeless. Mustafa recently created the Sweet Wishes Foundation, with some of the proceeds from the event going to help needy families across Greater Miami & Miami Beach.

The Backstory Behind SweetHeat Miami

After years of DJ’ing parties and events across Miami and the U.S., Mustafa dreamed of creating her own weekend getaway party that celebrated women from all over the world. Since much of her work life and relationships centered around South Beach nightclubs, it made sense for South Beach to be the center of the weekend’s events.

The inaugural SweetHeat Miami event kicked off in May 2008, drawing more than 1,000 women from across the United States. The following year, expectations were surpassed with more than 8,000 women filling the streets of South Beach. By 2015, SweetHeat Miami welcomed around 40,000 women from across the world.

“It goes to show that bright sun, a sandy beach and a beautiful bikini can’t be denied,” says Mustafa. “Miami is the best place in the world. The weather is perfect, and you can visit so many different eclectic neighborhoods beyond South Beach.”

Tickets to SweetHeat Miami

Tickets can be purchased online or at the door (tickets to the yacht party must be purchased in advance). Ticket prices range from $20 to $60.
