In most parts of the country, February is kind of the worst. Sure, there’s Valentine’s day, which is nice and all, but that’s a very fleeting bright spot in a month otherwise defined by darkness, slush, and the distinct ebbing of Holiday Spirits and New Year Energy. In Miami, though, the weather is warm without being hot, the sun is out, and the beaches are open. Here’s our picks for the best Miami events to check out this February and escape the winter doldrums!
SOBE Wine and Food Festival – Feb 23-26, 2023
For fans of good food and wine (or just fans of the Food Network), the SOBE Wine and Food Festival is pretty much a dream come true. With dozens of events ranging from a headlining Burger Bash with Emeril Lagasse to intimate dinners created by Michelin starred chefs to Masterclasses and neighborhood food tours, the SOBE WFF has something for everyone. Crewfare is excited to be partnering with SOBE WFF to bring you the best rates for hotels near Miami Beach. Bring your appetite!
Ground Up Music Festival – Feb 3-5, 2023
Music aficionados who want to branch out their playlists will certainly enjoy a weekend at the Ground Up Music Festival, happening February 3-5. It’s hard to pin down the exact type of music playing at the Ground Up Music Festival–it’s headlined, as usual, by Snarky Puppy, a Grammy-winning jazz ensemble. But it also features pop and blues-inspired artists, as well as acts from around the globe. This year Ground Up will host three days and nights of performances at the outdoor Miami Beach Bandshell in North Beach.
We Belong Here – Feb 25-26, 2023
If what you need in February is to dance all night (and day), then We Belong Here, happening on Virginia Key Beach February 25-26, is for you. Featuring a 360* dance floor and 3 hour sets from acts like Kaskade Redux and Lane 8, We Belong Here turns Virginia Key Beach (an Island just 10 minutes out from Miami’s Financial District) into a “pop up beach club”. Check out We Belong Here’s travel hub to get a feel for where you could stay to enjoy a weekend in Miami.
Coconut Grove Art Festival – Feb 18-20, 2023
The Coconut Grove Art Festival is an almost 60-year-old tradition in Miami. This homegrown weekend showcases hundreds of artists. You can view juried prizes and purchase original artwork that you can add to your budding collection. It’s in a great location, overlooking Biscayne Bay, and you can check out cooking demonstrations and live music in addition to the beautiful art.
Miami International Boat Show – Feb 15-19, 2023
If you’re a boat lover, the Miami Boat Show, happening February 15-19 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, is the place you want to be. While there are tons of options for boat buyers to test drive and check out the latest models and types of boats, all those same options are available for people who just like to be out on the water on occasion. The boat show includes an indoor portion at the Convention Center and an outdoor portion on the docks, so you’ll get plenty of time enjoying the best of Miami’s sun and water. This is another event partnering with Crewfare so make sure you check out our travel hub when you’re booking!
