Launched in 1994 as a one-time charity dance event on the sands of beautiful South Beach, Winter Party Festival has evolved into a week-long festival benefiting the LGBTQ community on the national and local levels. Over 10,000 guests from all over the United States and abroad attend at least one of the 25+ events -- including dance, fashion, art, dining and more -- that take place in Miami, Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
The Festival climaxes with The Beach Party, a dance event on the sands of South Beach.
No matter where your interests lie, the Festival offers something for you. Winter Party Festival - it's MUCH more than a day at the beach.This fabulous celebration, benefiting the National LGBTQ Task Force, is also an important fundraiser for Miami-Dade's LGBTQ service organizations. To date, the Festival and its sister event, the Task Force Gala - Miami, have raised over $2.1 million for organizations serving the South Florida LGBT community.
