The beach, an icon, and a whole lotta pride. Miami Beach Pride is set for this weekend in Lummus Park. The two-day festival starts Friday night and hits its zenith Sunday afternoon with the parade.

The party gets started at 7 p.m. Friday with the VIP Beach Affair, hosted by Jessica Wild. The $95 ticket gets you into the park for an open bar and food plus special, yet-to-be announced entertainment.

The big action starts Saturday at noon with three stages to provide whatever type of entertainment you’re looking for. DJ Alex Tucci, DJ Gunn and DJ Ice will be spinning on the dance stage. The entertainment stage will feature Osmani Garcia, who’s collaborated with Miami legend Pitbull, will headline. Farina, Ultra Naté, Jessica Wild and more will also perform. The community stage will feature Bonnie Builder, Gabriel Smith, Shy and others.

Sunday is the big day. The parade steps off at noon at Fifth and Ocean and moves down towards 14th. Grand Marshals Lisa Rinna and June Diane Raphael will lead the procession along with Billy Porter who will headline later in the day.

Miss Miami Beach Pride 2024, Tiara Love Dupree, will wear her hard-earned crown as she sits on her throne while riding down Ocean Drive.

After the parade, top tier talent will take the stages. Billy Porter, who loves hanging out in South Florida, is headlining the day. Influencer JoJo Siwa will give her world premiere performance of her new hit, Karma.

Parade viewing and entrance to the party, both days, is free. VIP tickets are available. Single day tickets are $250, with a three-day pass costing $500.

But Miami Beach is already showing its Pride on the streets. A Pride-decorated trolley is cruising the city and smaller events started a week ago. Organizers are thrilled with community excitement.

“Growing from a 15,000-person event in 2009 to now being one of the most celebrated Prides in the country with more than 170,000 attendees from all over the world, our goal is to honor our community all while having the message of unwavering resilience and uniqueness on full display along Miami Beach,” said Bruce Horwich, Chairman of Miami Beach Pride.

Miami Beach has dozens of parking lots, but with tens of thousands expected on Saturday and Sunday, rideshare and public transportation is encouraged.

“With over 12 days of exciting events, there is truly something for everyone, and we have maintained our commitment to keep much of our programming free for the community to be as inclusive as possible,” Horwich said.
