Free Things To Do In Miami!

Visiting paradise can come with a high price tag. Between getting a room at a world-renown resort, eating meals at celebrity chef-owned restaurants, and enjoying the infamous nightlife, a trip to Miami can quickly deplete your travel budget. The savvy traveler enjoys the finer aspects of Miami life but takes advantage of the myriad of free activities the local community has to offer. From free movies in the park to street festivals, these events offer the perfect opportunity to explore Miami without breaking the bank.

Miami Beach Food Truck and Music Fest

If you are in Miami Beach, you have several options. The City of Miami Beach provides a suite of free programming throughout the week at various locations. The two most popular events are: the Miami Beach SoundScape Cinema Series, which screens movies outdoors at the SoundScape park lawn every Wednesday night; and the Miami Beach Food Truck and Music Fest, a food truck rally and free concert at the North Shore Bandshell on the fourth Wednesday of every month.

Zing Experience at Big Night in Little Haiti

Like Miami Beach, the mainland offers a bevy of free events. On every third Friday, Little Haiti hosts a night of music, art, food, culture, and fun called Big Night in Little Haiti. The monthly event gives locals and visitors a chance to explore this often-overlooked neighborhood. Similarly, the last Friday of every month, Little Havana’s famed Calle Ocho comes alive with Cuban-inspired art, music, and food for Viernes Culturales. Coral Gables does not stray far behind with Gallery Night, which takes place the first Friday of every month from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In the city’s popular Wynwood Arts District, the second Saturday of every month means Art Walk. From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the neighborhood’s art galleries open up to the public and sometimes offer free music and refreshments. During the week, Wynwood neighbor and Miami’s favorite juice spot Jugofresh brings the community together for Yoga Del Barrio, a free yoga class taught by local yoga guru Dawn B Feinberg the third Wednesday of every month.

Wynwood Arts District

Wynwood’s neighbor, the Arts and Entertainment District, is a recent newcomer to the local social scene, but they have stepped front and center with their free programming. Past events include a silent yoga class, a live art competition, and concerts. The options vary month to month so check their event calendar for up-to-date information.

Free activities available in Miami go beyond free events. Some of our most popular attractions are also free of charge if you know when to go. For example, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, a modern and contemporary art museum in downtown Miami, offers free admission the first Thursday of every month from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. In Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art offers free admission the last Sunday of every month from noon to 5 p.m. Due to the low price tag, free museum entry days tend to be the most popular with locals.
