Overtown Music and Arts Festival is back in the historic Overtown district of Miami on Saturday, July 15, 2017. In partnership with the Southeast Overtown Park West Community Redevelopment Agency and City of Miami District 5 Commissioner Keon Hardemon, the Annual Overtown Music and Arts Festival promises to promote economic development, community enrichment and bring excitement to Overtown. Free to the general public, the highly anticipated festival of celebration will include live performances by soon to be announced nationally-known recording artists, vendors showcasing artwork, ethnic cuisine, unique crafts, jewelry and a vast array of entertainment.
Encompassing the stellar reputation of the Overtown Music and Arts Festival, the business & historic district will host one of the largest festivals serving the prominent area of Overtown. For over five years, some of the worldâ€™s top contemporary artists have graced the stage of the festival entertaining thousands of local residents and nation-wide festival goers. This year, while adult festival goers will flock the main stage, youngsters can enjoy the Youth Zone, powered by the non-profit â€œTeens Exercising Extraordinary Successâ€ (T.E.E.S.). From toddlers to teens, the Youth Zone will provide festival-style entertainment including live performances, arts and crafts, face painting, bounce houses, karaoke, and fun fitness activities.
