Car enthusiasts, it’s almost time for the 2021 Miami International Auto Show!

The annual show at the Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, had been rescheduled for May 2021 but had to be postponed once again. But now, the show is happening Oct. 16-24, 2021.

The health and safety of all those involved with our Miami show is of utmost importance and we will follow the guidelines that have been provided by the State of Florida, City of Miami Beach and the facility. We will continue to provide updates on the auto show.”

Presented by the South Florida Automobile Dealers Association, the event typically features more than 190 dealerships in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, displaying cars, trucks, vans, sport utility vehicles, hybrids and concept vehicles by the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. Show attendees can take a drive along the most picturesque roadways of Miami Beach in their favorite new cars and trucks at the Ride-n-Drives.

Past special display areas also have included:

  • Havana Classics, the nostalgic collection of autos from yesterday’s Havana, showcasing many of the most popular vehicles from Cuba during the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s.
