Viernes Culturales

Calle Ocho

Fri, May 17th @ 12:00 pm EDT

Viernes Culturales

Viernes Culturales has been a beacon of art and culture for South Florida. It has catalyzed the economic and cultural growth of the neighborhood. Thanks to the festival, Little Havana has been recognized as a National Treasure by the National Trust of Historic Preservation, receiving media attention both nationally and internationally. A symbol of inclusiveness, Little Havana is a testament to what America is all about.

America is a nation of immigrants and Little Havana is Miami’s Ellis Island—a place where generations of people have launched their American journey. An internationally recognized symbol of the role of immigrants in the American story, Little Havana remains a thriving, healthy and culturally rich urban neighborhood.

Little Havana’s popular art and culture festival is a great event for the whole family.  Enjoy music and discover works by over 30 local artists and artisans.  Walk along SW 8th Street, and behold contemporary and historic art at our many art galleries along Calle Ocho. Finish off your fabulous Friday night by savoring a delicious dinner or Cuban Cafecito at one of our various restaurants, and walk it all off by signing up here for a spot in Dr. Paul George’s FREE Little Havana Walking Tour at 7pm.


Come dance, eat, shop and enjoy an authentic and delightful evening in Little Havana every Third Friday of the month starting at noon on Calle Ocho (8 street from 14th-17th Avenue)
