Labor Day is all about honoring the working people - and there’s no better way to do that than taking the weekend off. To properly celebrate, Miami packs the weekend with events and festivals. From ice cream tasting to setting sail on a party boat, savor the final days of summer at one of the many events in Miami on Labor Day weekend.

Reggae Splash Festival

The ultimate live reggae music and water experience is happening Labor Day at the new GRO Wynwood. Featuring live performances by Inner Circle, Amara La Negra, 4th & Orange, Hymn Marley, and more, Reggae Splash is fun for the whole family. Food and drinks, water fun, a raffle to win a vacation to Jamaica, and live music begins at 2 p.m. 

Cookout Classics

American holidays go hand-in-hand with smoked BBQ and Labor Day is no exception. Go all out at the best traditional BBQ joints in the city like Bo Legs BBQ, Bar-B-Que Ribs Chicken & Jerk Shack, Smokey Trails BBQ, Sparky's Roadside BBQ, and Shorty's Bar-B-Q. For something different, try South Beach eateries Drunken Dragon (Korean BBQ) and Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse (Brazilian meats). If BBQ isn’t your thing, now through the end of September you can dine at the best restaurants in the city for less. Miami Spice Months offers three-course, prix-fixe menus for $23 during lunch and brunch and $39 during dinner.

Party Boat

Set sail, let loose, and celebrate your hard work on a Labor Day boat cruise through Biscayne Bay. Miami Party 4 U is throwing an inclusive party boat sail the entire weekend. Hang with other party goers and enjoy light snacks, an open bar, non stop music, water sports, a swim stop, and a party bus ride back to the initial meeting point. Meet at Tequila Chicas (only a half mile from Washington Park Hotel) to begin your Labor Day weekend excursion.

Attend the All White Yacht Party aboard the South Beach Lady, happening nightly throughout Labor Day weekend. The 125’ luxury yacht leaves from Bayfront Park in Downtown and features four levels of cash bars, bottle service, flat screen televisions, open air promenades, cabana style furniture, a complimentary light buffet, and a DJ Sky booth with music by DJ Prince and DJ Snap.

Live Music

Shared musical experiences become memories that will last a lifetime. Catch The Rolling Stones performing live at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday, August 31. The British “working-class heroes” come to Miami for their No Filter Tour, performing greatest hits like  “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Midnight Rambler” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Hit up the local music scene. Dance to Latin tunes at Hoy Como Ayer, Ball & Chain, and Mango’s Tropical Café or visit the cozy New Orleans-style Lagniappe wine bar for Sunday jazz.
