Miami Carnival 2022: The Fete List & Things to Know!

Hello Carnivalists!

Let’s talk about Miami Carnival. I know some people have mixed feelings about Miami but I find it to be the sweet ending to the carnival season. You get a culmination of all the soca hits from each carnival, renewed energy and it’s the most cost effective of all carnivals. Whether this is your first time or 10th time, the Miami Carnival festivities can be fun.  Here’s a list of 3 things you absolutely need to know

  • The parade will take place on October 8, 2023
    • For the people who are not playing mas, the Miami Carnival parade will take place at Miami Dade Fair Grounds — 10901 SW 24 St • Miami, FL 33165. You can pay $50usd to enter the grounds and spectate
  • The ideal location to stay would be Brickell or Miami Beach. Most of the fetes are held nearby these neighborhoods.
  • If you choose to participate in the parade and play mas, choose a band not only based on the look of the costumes but their reputation and customer service. What good is a pretty costume if the band usually has production issues?
    • I highly recommend Revel Nation as a premium choice for Miami Carnival.  Checkout this Miami Carnival Review for feedback on other bands.

  1. Miami is always a good time. I’ve played with One Island and I had a great time. The only annoying thing was how unorganized the costume pick up situation was. If you have the opportunity I’d also recommend the Uber Soca cruise it was AMAZING. In 2023 they will have dates in April and November.
