The Fair! Be There! We know the real Miamians remember that song and are pumped for this year’s Youth Fair. The only real question is how many days you’re going to go, and who you’ll be bringing along!
For those of you who are new to South Florida or going to the big event for the first time, here’s what you need to know:
The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition is March 15th to April 8th at Tamiami Park. Pre-tickets, effective until March 14th and bought online, are $12 for admission and $28 for unlimited rides. If you purchase advance tickets at the fairgrounds, it’ll be $14 for admission and $30 for unlimited rides from Monday to Thursday. Weekend tickets for unlimited rides will cost you $37. After March 14th, ticket prices increase a bit, so act quickly!
The Fair is full of exciting and thrilling activities for all! There will be almost 100 rides for the adventure seekers along with competitive games, kid-friendly rides and games, animals and delicious foods – don’t even get us started on the food! And inside Arnold Hall, there will be more than 60,000 student exhibits to see.
The Youth Fair will also feature several entertaining concerts for your pleasure. On Saturday, March 17th, Sugarhill Gang and Ginuwine are performing. On Friday, April 6th, TLC will perform, and on Saturday, April 7th, Nelly will shut the park down.
For those of you driving (or flying) into town for the Youth Fair, we’ve got your hotel needs covered. Our downtown Miami hotel is near everything you’ll need to your trip a success. The Homewood Suites Brickell is near great restaurants and bars, our rooms are plush and comfortable, and we always offer affordable rates!
When you stay with us, you don’t have to stress about a thing. The only thing you have to worry about is how you’re going to masterfully eat your pork chop on a stick while grooving to Ginuwine.
Enjoy the fair, South Florida!
