There’s no doubt that Miami’s LGBTQ+ community will seize every opportunity to live loud and proud in 2021 — especially in celebration of Pride Month.

Whether you’re looking for drag, art, dancing, global cuisine, or all of the above, look no further than the Wynwood Art District, which plays host to the third-annual Wynwood Pride Festival.

This year the Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID) is partnering with Wynwood Pride to host a wide range of activations at popular neighborhood hot spots. Events range from neighborhoodwide drag shows and all-day dance parties to surprise celebrity appearances and new Pride mural installations, culminating with performances from Charli XCX, Honey Dijon, Kandy Muse, Miss Toto, and others.

"We're ready to safely come together and once again to create some Pride magic together after this past year of being apart," Jose Atencio, organizer of the Wynwood Pride Festival 2021, says in a press release.


Below is an alphabetical list of Wynwood establishments promoting inclusion for Miami's LGBTQ+ community with food and drink specials this month.
