Free events at Basecamp in Magic City Innovation District

In the heart of Little Haiti on its main drag of NE 2 Ave. is the Magic City Innovation District home to the entertainment and event space Basecamp at 298 NE 61 St.

This week…

Feb. 21 – Friday Night Live from 9 p.m. to midnight with a live band and drink specials

Feb. 23 – Caribbean Sundays with live music, dancing, drink specials and local vendors

The open-air complex is home to a variety of food trucks selling craft cocktails and beers, mezcal and agave drinks tacos, food by famed Chef Todd English, fresh made juices and sweet treats.

It’s a great spot for families with funky art installations, games for kids and adults (cornhole anyone?), swing sets and hands on activities and a DJ booth shaped like a gramophone but with red lighting looks like something out of Star Wars. They also have a creative village and Boho market with vintage clothes and accessories and lounging areas.

Basecamp is open Thursdays noon to midnight, Fridays noon to 3 a.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
