Art Basel Miami Beach is coming back! Taking place every December at the Miami Beach Convention Center, this leading art event will once again bring together the best artists and art galleries from across the globe. Originally debuting as a standalone event in 2002, Art Basel Miami Beach has since exploded in popularity, spurring the surrounding Miami Art Week: a star-studded week of satellite art fairs, events, pop-up parties and more all over the city. This year’s Art Basel Miami Beach will be open to the public from December 5th to December 8th, 2019.

Today, Art Basel Miami Beach and Miami Art Week not only make up the largest art event in North America, but together, create one of the busiest weeks to be out and about in South Florida. With over 100,000 art collectors, aficionados and celebrities expected to attend this year’s festivities—not to mention more than 260 galleries from 33 countries on display—you need a game plan to know exactly how to get there and where to park. Find insider tips on Miami Art Week transportation and parking below.

Valet parking will be available at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which will once again play host to both Art Basel Miami Beach and Design Miami.
