The best time of the week is finally here — the weekend. The next three days are filled with music, art, and boozy beverages galore. From Coral Gables to Little Havana to South Beach, these are the best places to be until the sun comes up Monday morning.

  • Goo Goo Dolls at Bayfront Park AmphitheatreAfter the band's five-year Miami hiatus, local fans of the Goo Goo Dolls would likely give up forever just to know they're with their favorite group. Luckily, the Dolls have booked a gig at Bayfront Park this week. 
  • Festival de Cante Flamenco at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing ArtsFor flamenco noobs, this style of performance is all about the dancing, the hand-clapping, the singing, and the sex appeal. This particular production is straight from Spain, and it’s bringing an outstanding array of vocalists, dancers, and guitarists to the intimate Carnival Studio Theater at the Adrienne Arsht Center, so you can get up close and personal with this original art form. 


  • "Lit Getti" at Casa de Fado GalleryThis Labor Day weekend, a new exhibition, “Lit Getti,” shines the spotlight on ten exceptional young artists. Each participant — Lofty305, Moral, Sebastian Ruiz, Armani Love, Robbie81, Freebase, Ruben Slikk, Marlon Preuess, Nicole Dixon, and Ticoe — brings a unique style and perspective to the mix.
  • ArtBrazil 2016 at Various Locations: With a variety of mediums on display — from photography and painting to sculpture and ceramics — this varied assortment of installations reflects Brazilian art and tradition in the most contemporary context. This year, more than 120 artists are expected to take part.


  • Lincoln Road Farmers Market at Lincoln Road MallYou’ll find a spectacular display of fruits, veggies, fresh flowers and plants, bread, honey, jams, and other items that people in other parts of the country have to buy indoors. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
