Miami River Poetry Cruise

Miami River Poetry CruiseApril 1 & 10, 6:30pm-8:30pm - Bayside Marketplace, 401 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Kick off O, Miami Poetry Festival and National Poetry Month with the smoothest event April: a lyrical boat cruise up the Miami River. Co-created and -produced with O, Miami , Miami River Poetry Cruise is a journey into the Heart of Dade-ness, guided by locals, protected by pythons, and serenaded by some of Miami’s best poets in a round-robin, “tour-guide” format invented just for this occasion. Hear the first-ever Prayer to Bayside, the second Ode to Fort Dallas, and settle, once and for all, via poetry, the debate of which is the better fish spot: Garcia’s or Casablanca?

Tickets will include a free beer provided by Biscayne Bay Brewing, and a light snacks. The cruise boards promptly at 6:30 p.m. from Bayside Marina, travels up the Miami River, and re-docks in Bayside at 8:30 p.m. Your ticket also gets you a free drink at the Official After-party at The Intercontinental Hotel. Tickets are $45 per person.
