Description

Every June dancers and musicians take to the streets in Coconut Grove, moving in the sultry heat of Miami at one of the largest black heritage festivals in the United States. Visitors take in the culture of the Bahamas and celebrate along with the performers in a spectacle known as the Goombay Festival. Taking its name from a goat skin drum, visitors to the festival can soak in the culture, food, sounds and smells of the Bahamas, brought to Miami for this yearly event. The festival also boasts arts and crafts vendors, a parade filled with vivid costumes and unforgettable music, making this event loads of fun for all who attend.
