Goombay Festival

We’re all about festivals today, as we seek to help you plan your summer by adding interesting new events to your
summer travel plans.

The largest black heritage event of its type in the country, the Goombay
Festival
kicks off on June 4 in Miami. It has been a colorful and noisy celebration of the Bahamanian roots of the
Coconut Grove area since 1977. There are multi-colored processions (and we do mean multi-colored as many cultures show
up to drink like frat boys and writhe to the music), and many different music venues to choose from. Named after the
skin-covered Goombay drums this could be a cool way to spend a few days in Miami.
