Overview

Join over a million people who party in the streets of Miami's Little Havana for the Calle Ocho Festival, the culmination of Carnaval Miami each year. The festival takes place yearly on a Sunday in March and spreads over 24 city blocks, with entertainment on 30 stages, delicious food options and Pan-American cultural demonstrations. Dance to salsa, merengue and reggaeton as you make your way through the neighbourhood, or drop in on the popular domino tournament at Domino Park. In the past, world records have been set or broken at the festival, including the longest cigar, most domino players and the world's longest conga line of nearly 120,000 people!
