The Road To The Calle Ocho Festival 2019

Since 1978, Carnaval Miami has been organized by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana and is held annually between February and March.  Through the dedicated support of the club’s members, volunteers and dedicated corporate and community partners, Carnaval Miami has grown into one of the largest Latin cultural celebrations in the United States, culminating with the world-famous El Festival de la Calle Ocho (Calle Ocho Festival).

Here are some events leading up to Calle Ocho Festival which takes place March 10th, 11am -7pm.
