"Goombay Festival" Top 5 Page for this destination Miscelaneous Tip by Homanded
Miscelaneous, Miami: 8 reviews and 8 photos
Bahama's version of Calle Ocho and located in Grand Avenue, Coconut Grove.
Reported to be the largest black heritage festival in the US, it started in 1977 and it has grown from there.
It is geared towards the Bahamian roots in Miami and features dancing in the streets, music, calypso and ra-gae music.
Dancing to the steel drums, watching the colorful costumes parading down the beautiful streets of Coconut Grove and sampling all that delicious Caribbean food makes for an intoxicating weekend!
I find it more fun than Calle Ocho - Dont miss it if you have a chance.
Always in August, check for specific times.
Admission is Free
Runs Friday through Sunday 10:00am - 11:00pm
