Held from March 5-10, the Winter Party Festival is an action-packed line-up of over 20 events, parties and activities. Art and culture events, shopping along Lincoln Road, and cocktail receptions are just the beginning of the many activities lined up.
There are nine dance parties featuring DJ’s and entertainment from around the world. The highlight event will be the Beach Party, along Ocean Drive, where DJ Danny Verde (Italy) and DJ Grind (San Francisco), will be laying down the hottest beats and tracks. Under One Sun Pool Party is another not-to-miss event, featuring DJ Gustavo Scorpio (Rio de Janeiro) and Seth Cooper (Chicago).
The National Hotel Miami Beach is the host hotel for the 2014 Winter Party Festival. Guests who had previously booked rooms at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach have had their reservations transferred to the new host hotel, which will honor the original room rates. As a result of these transfers, the National Hotel is now completely sold out for Winter Party Festival, but additional rooms are available for Winter Party Festival guests at Gale South Beach and Regent Hotel, The Shore Club and Hotel Gaythering.
Individual event tickets and festival passes are on sale now. Individual events start at $15 USD and festival passes from $165 USD. Event organizers have cautioned that tickets are selling very quickly and to purchase Winter Party Festival passes now.
The events are produced by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force with the support of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority. Since 2004, over $1.6 million in proceeds have been donated to fund programs in South Florida and support national efforts.
