What’s New

We are Here!

#MiamiCarnival is excited to participate in the 12th annual celebration of #GiveMiamiDay under our Junior Carnival program.

We love Miami and we are ready to show it! How about you?

Mark your calendars for November 16, 2023 to join Greater Miami’s largest day of generosity and support to our community’s nonprofits.

Please join us and invest in our youth.

Miami Carnival celebrates young people with our annual Jr. Carnival.

This creatively enriching youth experience offers an annual parade of young masqueraders competing for bragging rights and prizes, showcases arts and crafts, such as face painting, calypso competition, a Panorama concert, and other youth-inspired activities. Junior Carnival is an all-round event that offers our young leaders and masqueraders a space to grow and shine. It’s also a great avenue for developing artistry.

Please join us in raising funds and awareness for the steel pan and new mask-making workshops.  The Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee expanded its youth enrichment program and launched its youth pan workshops and new mask-making workshops. These fun and interactive workshops are designed to introduce children to the steel pan and making of mas through hands-on instruction. We intend to empower children to discover their highest potential through musical instruction and in a collaborative environment that helps build confidence and teamwork. Children learn the importance of collaboration and cooperation; they learn how to become one voice and, through their shared experience, grow stronger as individuals and as a community.

Will you Join us in Building a Stronger Miami?
For a stronger Miami, we ask everyone to show up.
