The internationally acclaimed Jazz in the Gardens Music Festival returns to Miami. The festival’s 16th year boasts an eclectic lineup celebrating Black music and culture. The two-day festival will include some of the biggest names in R&B, neo-soul, and reggae. This year’s edition will also have a special soulful Sunday featuring several award-winning Gospel artists.
The festival had a historical return in 2022 after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Performer Rick Ross was honored on stage as Mayor Rodney Harris & Council declared March 13th “Rick Ross Day.”
Previous festivals have drawn crowds of over 70,000. This year’s festival will be monumental for the city as it celebrates its 20th anniversary of incorporation. With a population of approximately 113,000, it is the third-largest city in Miami-Dade County. Miami Gardens is a solid professional community of unique diversity. It is the largest predominantly African American municipality in Florida and boasts thousands of Caribbean and Hispanic residents.
