The Third Annual Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival, organized, planned and executed by volunteers from the Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival Inc., a fiscal sponsor of The Miami Foundation, and local leaders of the Overtown Community. Together, they aim to celebrate the rich history of one of Miami’s earliest historically black communities and the place where some of music’s biggest legends, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, performed and stayed. Set on the vibrant main street of NW 3rd Avenue, between 9th and 11th Streets in the Historic Overtown District, this one-day annual Festival will come alive once again on June 22, 2013 with local food, art, and entertainment.
Along with great music, festivalgoers will enjoy local food, art vendors showcasing their work and a kids village that will have interactive activities, including face painting and balloon creations and sport games.
Admission to the festival is free.
