Winter Party Festival

Winter Party Festival

Mar 1 - 7, 2023

If it’s winter in Greater Miami & Miami Beach, it must mean it’s time for the popular Winter Party Festival, an annual, weeklong LGBTQ+ celebration of music, dance and community. Taking place at locations throughout the destination from Wednesday, March 1 through Tuesday, March 7, 2023, Winter Party Festival events raise funds in support of the National LGBTQ Task Force. While it might be freezing and snowing in your neck of the woods this time of year, you can appreciate sunny, beautiful Miami. Grab your friends and chosen family and get ready to party for a good cause!

Stay & Play At The Winter Party Festival’s Host Hotel

The festival traditionally kicks off with a welcome reception at the festival’s host hotel, the Royal Palm South Beach. Located in the heart of South Beach, the Royal Palm is an iconic 1930s Art Deco hotel just steps from the beach. The welcome reception is a great opportunity to meet other festival goers, pick up a welcome bag and meet a variety of exhibitors and vendors.

The hotel is close to many options for dining and recreation. A few blocks away is Time Out Market Miami, a popular food hall with offerings from some of the area’s top chefs. For more elegant fare, check out Byblos Miami, a Mediterranean restaurant in an upscale and colorful dining space. For a late-night snack, two local favorites are La Sandwicherie South Beach and Cheeseburger Baby.

Dance Parties & Performances

The 2023 Winter Party event lineup has not been announced yet. Stay tuned for updates.

The Beach Party

The marquee event and “crown jewel” of Winter Party Festival is THE BEACH PARTY. It is held right on the sand off of 12th Street and Ocean Drive. For seven hours, from 1-8 p.m., guests can enjoy an amazing dance party as the sands of South Beach come alive with thousands of people from around the world. Expect impressive production, a massive dance floor and uplifting dance music by top international DJs. It’s truly an experience you will not want to miss. (Pro tip: Be there before sunset for a truly magical “dancing at dusk” moment!)

Tickets & Passes

Individual event tickets and festival passes will be available on the Winter Party Festival’s official website at a later date. Some festival passes include access to all related events. To keep everyone safe, the Winter Party Festival requires proof of vaccination.
