Wynwood Art Walk has become one of the most iconic events in Miami.
Taking place on the second Saturday of every month in Wynwood, the event has organically grown from a gallery night to an incredible collection of artists, dancers, gourmet food trucks, music and the best people watching in South Florida.

With that same pioneering attitude, Art Walk and the hub of food trucks, nightlife and entertainment has staked its claim on the next big thing — Fifth Avenue. This will become the “new” home and epicenter of Wynwood Art Walk, beginning on NW 23rd St. and 5th Ave.
“What many consider the main drag of Wynwood, 2nd Avenue, is really quite difficult to navigate. It’s offers one lane in each direction, has little or no parking available and is just a closed-in series of concrete buildings. This is why we decided to move Wynwood Art Walk to 5th Avenue, just one block west,” says Tony Albelo, CEO at SWARM who produces many of the activations during Wynwood Art Walk.
The new location is three-times as wide with a tree-lined median. The graffiti, or street art, that Wynwood has been known for is still there, but accented by natural greenery and a more picturesque avenue. Parking will no longer be a problem, because there are over 3,000 parking spaces in the lots adjacent to the new location.
People will continue to find incredible artisans showcasing and selling their crafts. They’ll find South Florida’s top food trucks, top bands and DJ’s playing, and yes, plenty of people watching. Art Walk is free and open to the public.
