Columbus Day

Miami Broward Carnival

Feel the rhythm of the night during the Miami Broward Carnival held on October 11, 2015. Presented by Miami Broward One, Columbus Day in Miami will never be the same! This will be a special VIP event for sponsors, celebrities and performers who are all in town to celebrate Carnival Miami. The venue will be decorated like a huge Caribbean carnival, complete with a children’s area, indoor Ferris wheel, a parade, and lots of music, food and drinks. This venue will feature sections themed like a masquerade, with each section featuring a mask. Hosts and hostesses will be outfitted in costumes and traditional garb from the Caribbean nations.

Local and national Caribbean performers will be in attendance, and each sponsor will have a booth where their choice of food will be available. All foods will mirror authentic Caribbean dishes. During the event, a music truck will enter and play music for everyone to dance to. Special appearances by the Carnival King and Queen, Junior Carnival and Miss Miami Broward with attendees having an opportunity to take pictures with them.

The entire event will be filled with many reasons to have fun! Created as an extension of Miami Broward Carnival, this venue will allow participants to see another side of Miami.
