Boat Show, Arts Fest

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival applauds Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado, Commissioner Marc Sarnoff and the many others in Miami and Key Biscayne for their diligent efforts to find a home for the Miami International Boat Show.

The Arts Festival and Boat Show have showcased the many wonders of Greater Miami to an international audience while, most important, filling hotel rooms, providing much needed jobs and having a significant economic impact on our community.

There’s no city in America that can claim to host two world-class events on the same weekend. Come Presidents Day Weekend 2016, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival again looks forward to proudly sharing the stage with one of the marine industry’s most prestigious events, the Miami International Boat show.

Monty Trainer, president, Coconut Grove Arts Festival, Miami
