Miami, mark your calendars because the day that’s dedicated just to us is fast approaching! 305 Day, an annual celebration of everything that makes Miami-Dade, Miami-Dade, takes place every year on March 5th (a.k.a. 3/05).
It became the official day to have a coffee break at 3:05 p.m., thanks to 305 Cafecito, and has since grown from a little ventanita gathering in Little Havana to large-scale block parties with thousands of attendees and counting in several locations. More recently, Mr. Worldwide himself — Pitbull — became an owner in 305 Day, catapulting the event to a whole new level.
This weekend, the official block party is making its grand return to Wynwood and it’s bigger and better than ever! It will be the 10th installment of the event, kicking things off with live music, local vendors, art and a lineup of mouthwatering food and drinks.
There’s so much to do over the weekend, so we thought we’d break it down to help you out if you’re looking to celebrate with friends or the fam. And believe us when we say there is truly something for everyone.
Taking over Wynwood Marketplace for an extravaganza of food, talent and fun, the event will kick off with a Miami-inspired Zumba class by Nathaly Castellon to get the crowd going, as well as surprises alongside DJ Gringo.
Highlights include the many diverse flavors of the 305, from tacos to burgers to the best pastelitos, and of course, vegan-friendly options. There will also be local vendors showcasing the best wares, vintage threads, graphic tees, pins, home decor and more.
This year’s lineup doesn’t disappoint, with DJ Laz, Otto Von Schirach, DJ Epps, Master Feathers and DJ Zog keeping the party going alongside DJ Gringo. Iamchino will also be back to hit the stage of the Magic City-centric event.
Amplifying Hispanic talent in true Miami style, Red Bull Batalla — the world’s largest Spanish-language freestyle competition — will also feature top MCs and ambassadors showcasing their unmatched freestyle and improvisation skills as part of 305 Day. You can also expect a performance by Hip Hop Kidz and a meet-and-greet opp with the internet’s favorite Cuban comedian, Jenny Lorenzo.
In anticipation for the event, 305 Day has partnered with Publix to give their Instagram followers a chance to win a $305 gift card for their next Miami Dolphins tailgate or a quintessential beach day complete with Pub Subs.
The official 305 Day party takes place on Sunday, March 5 at The Wynwood Marketplace (2250 NW 2nd Avenue), kicking things off at 3:05 p.m. For more information and free tickets, click here to visit their website.
