Winter Party Festival is an annual, week-long celebration of music, dance, and community, produced to raise critical funds for the LGBTQ community. Founded in 1994, the original Winter Party featured a single event: a dance party on the beach. It was an instant hit, and Winter Party has grown ever since, becoming an iconic week-long festival featuring dozens of events and drawing crowds by the thousands from around the globe. Our method is part genius and part magic. We feature an amazing mix of people, music, entertainment and international DJ talent, and we do so in the exhilarating, world-class venues of Miami Beach. So why not take a break from the icy cold winter? Soak up the sun, breathe in the ocean air, and get ready to PLAY HARD.
