calle ocho festival miami

People of all ages and backgrounds come together to celebrate the Miami tradition. This is a time to enjoy friends, food, music, and most importantly, each other. The festival was founded in 1984 by Cuban exiles living in Miami who wanted to create an event that would bring people from different cultures closer together. This year will be the 42th anniversary of this much-loved celebration!

Calle Ocho Festival

≡ FREE Event – March 13th, 2022
The Calle Ocho Festival, also known as “El Festival de la Calle Ocho,” is a one-day “rumba” or fiesta that marks the end of the Miami Carnaval. Every year in March, between 8th and 27th Avenues, along Southwest 8th Street, this event takes place. We are talking about 19 blocks along “Calle Ocho” in Little Havana, with activities and celebrations for every member of the family.

Featured Performers for 2022

Gloria Estefan, Camilo, Jessi Uribe, Jorge Celedón, and Bobby Pulido are among the newcomers to the Hispanic Heritage Month virtual event. Mau y Ricky, Ivy Queen, who is doing an epic virtual duet with the late Celia Cruz, and Tito Puente, Jr., who is singing a virtual duet with his late all-star father Tito Puente, are among the previously announced Calle Ocho Live monarchs.
