Friday June 21 @ 7:00 pm till 11:00 pm
Viernes Culturales/Cultural Fridays, Inc. is a nonprofit organization which coordinates the popular Viernes Culturales/Cultural Fridays art, music and culture festival. Our events are held on the last Friday of every month in the heart of Little Havana, on Calle Ocho between 13th and 17th Avenues, from 7-11 pm.
The idea for Cultural Fridays originated from The City of Miami Planning Department with the support of the City of Miami Commission, in collaboration with The Latin Chamber of Commerce, Little Havana Development Authority, merchants, residents, design professionals and community leaders. A City of Miami Planning Department 1984 Latin Quarter Study and 1994-96 Little Havana Neighborhood Planning Program recommended that a series of cultural activities and events including art exhibits, dance, music, poetry, theater, film, and neighborhood historic tours should be promoted all year round in order to preserve and enhance the rich culture of Little Havana. The first Cultural Friday was held on May 26, 2000 and approximately 2,000 people attended. Since then, internationally known artists have participated and supported Viernes Culturales/Cultural Fridays.
