In-person events

“Dennis Manuel: The Eye of AFROPUNK”: This photo exhibition, presented by Hampton Art Lovers, is an exploration into the realm of AFROPUNK through the lens of performance photographer Dennis Manuel. According to organizers: “Dennis Manuel has captured the explosion of expressing alternative Black realities found within the AFROPUNK movement as it continues to diverge a lane for historical black representation to be made.” The exhibit will be on display Thursdays through Sundays, from Feb. 4 to March 13. Tickets are free, but you must click here to RSVP and select a date. 

Trunk Town Market: This periodic outdoor market is presenting a special edition to kick off Black History Month, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 31 at Virginia Key Beach Park, 4020 Virginia Beach Drive, Miami. Expect a live auction, food trucks, a jazz performance and more. Admission to the market is free, but you must purchase a park ticket. On weekends, it costs $8 per vehicle to enter the park. Click here for more details.

Guide to Miami festivals & other 2021 events

Yes, many plans changed in 2020 … with vacations and shows and festivals canceled throughout Miami, South Florida and the world.

However, the New Year brings with it hope of brighter and better times ahead. Car shows, art festivals and more have been scheduled for 2021. 

We’ve compiled a month-by-month roundup of events in our area. Keep in mind that some events may be virtual. Others may follow strict safety protocols. You’ll want to get all the details and decide which options are best for you and your family. Click here for this handy guide to Miami events!

Canceled events in Miami

Throughout Miami – and all of South Florida, really – organizers have had to make tough decisions about whether to go ahead with their annual events. 

Some are doing the best they can under the circumstances. Others have decided their events will just not happen. 

Click here to see which events have been affected for the 2020-2021 season. These events will have to wait for now, but hopefully they’ll be back soon!
