HIGHLIGHTS

For The Kids: Japanese Taiko drumming from Fushu Daiko, folkloric dance and music from Peru Expresión, and participatory break-dancing led by the Flipside Kings.  Also included are all-day movement and acting workshops, face-painting and, in celebration of the September 16 opening of "Pandemonium: The Lost and Found Orchestra", a special craft corner where kids will be able to make their own “Lost and Found” instruments.

Food Trucks: Attendees will get a taste of Miami’s burgeoning gourmet street food movement at the festival as more than 30 food vendors convene on 13th Street in a parade of culinary treats for purchase, from burgers to tacos to ice cream.  Curated by Miami’s own Burger Beast, the lineup includes: Latin Burger, gastropod, La Camaronera, Nacho Mama’s Mexican Grill, Michael’s Genuine Food Cart, Sakaya Kitchen, Swanky’s Low ‘n Slow BBQ, and more.

Free Concert: Ozomatli, the celebrated Los Angeles urban Latino salsa-funk-dancehall-hip hop fusion band has gained international recognition from audiences and critics alike, from Japan to Australia to Africa.  Founded over a decade ago by a multi-cultural crew from L.A., the members of Ozomatli have risen from hometown heroes to U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors. Expect a rousing stage show with infectious, celebratory beats.
