Live music, tasty snacks, colorful art, fun games, and a family-friendly atmosphere — all in the name of South Florida’s philanthropic community.
Hundreds of South Floridians will once again flock to Miami Dade College Saturday to enjoy the annual celebration of greater Miami’s arts community, philanthropic organizations and community resources in a large scale community event called PhilanthroFest.
The free event is put on every April by a volunteer-based organization which aims at “connecting potential volunteers and donors to not-for-profit organizations while creating an environment that promotes civic engagement, deepens community connections and sparks the philanthropic spirit of South Florida,” according to the organization’s website. More than 100 local non-profits and community agencies will provide art, music, dance entertainment, a kid’s zone, a community stage, healthy living section, and other family friendly attractions.
Live music will be provided by Afrobeta, DJ Hank Justice, Guitar Over Guns and Bryan Del Toro. Performances will feature Fusion Gitana, Kikimora Studios and others. Food trucks, live painting and health screenings will also be part of the festivities.
PhilanthroFest will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Miami Dade College Wolfson campus at 300 NE Second Ave., in Miami.
