Ocean Drive Promenade Music Series

Picture this — you’re sitting on a lawn chair, an ocean breeze hits your face on a sunny Sunday with live music playing in the background.

You can make this daydream a reality with the Ocean Drive Promenade Music Series that takes place every Sunday at 5 p.m. between 14th Street and 14th Place on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach in front of The Betsy Hotel.

Concerts feature talented local South Florida performers. Bring a picnic, lawn chairs, blankets, and your whole gang to enjoy these free open-air performances.
