What is Gay8?

Little Havana Welcome Center

Gay8 is a Hispanic LGBT art, music and food street festival in Miami. The one day festival blends all of South Florida’s delights into one gigantic party in the heart of Miami’s historic, Little Havana.

The LGBT community has long embraced its diversity and Gay8 is an invitation to all Miamians and visitors to our city to come to Little Havana for the Fiesta of a lifetime.

Miami’s famed hub of everything Hispanic, Calle Ocho (8th Street) will be the epicenter of Gay8. The festival will stretch for three fun-packed, activity-filled blocks from 14th to 17th Avenues.

Gay8 features live entertainment featuring some of Miami’s most celebrated musical talent —bands like Palo, Suenalo, and Spam Allstars will perform and delight on Gay8’s main stage.

Miami’s richest flavors will fill the air with captivating aromas as noted local restaurants will compete for Gay8’s best “media noche” sandwich or most noted “croqueta” in our Tropical Food Court.

Art will also be aplenty at Gay8 as some of South Florida’s best painters and sculptors will punctuate the festival with booths displaying distinguished, authentic Miami works of art.

Miami Dade College’s Tower Theater, a renovated jewel on Calle Ocho and 15th Avenue will showcase LGBT themed films like “The Day it Snowed in Miami” all day long.

Spontaneous combustions of art and culture will be a keen component of Gay8. Guests enjoy pop up musical, theatrical and dance performances throughout the festival in varying locations.

Gay8 is preceded by two days (Friday and Saturday) of festival related activities at local sponsoring restaurants, galleries and dance clubs–which will host special VIP/ Sponsor events.
