The annual South Miami Art Festival is always the first weekend in November, kicking off the festival season in Miami-Dade County. It is held on historic Sunset Drive in the heart of South Miami (between US1 and Red Road) nestled between wide sidewalks, cafés, quaint shops and lush landscaping. The location and timing of the festival make it an ideal destination for holiday shoppers looking for the perfect gift for the special people in their lives. Neighboring restaurants and shops support the show by offering special pricing and extended hours for the weekend.
The event will include over 120 artist booths from around the world representing media such as ceramics and clay; digital art; textiles; glass; jewelry and metalwork; two-dimensional mixed media; three-dimensional mixed media; painting; photography; printmaking and drawing; sculpture; and wood. International food vendors featuring a wide array of cuisine will be available, including beverages from South Miami’s own Brewskis. In addition, the festival will have musical entertainment including performances from Area Stage Company, Miami Children’s Chorus, Van Gogh Listens, and others. Chamber South is working in conjunction with The Shops of Sunset Place and the Simon Youth Foundation to provide a children’s section with interactive activities and an emerging artists section for area students.
