Goombay Festival starts June 2nd in Coconut Grove.

Goombay Festival

Thu, Jun 2nd, 2011 to Sun, Jun 5th, 2011
Grand Ave, Coconut Grove, FL

The MiamiBahamas Goombay Festival in Coconut Grove, Inc. is a celebration of culture expression embracing the legacy of a Bahamian-rooted community known as Coconut Grove. The street festival transforms Grand Avenue into a journey across the ocean, creating a perfect harmony on a rich Caribbean culture of the Bahamas and the strong African-American vibes of Miami. Over the years, the festival has become a signature event including a historical luncheon for the pioneers, a children’s corner, where kids read stories and make junkanoo costumes, a colorful parade of energetic, brightly costumed people gyrating and dancing to the rhythmic accompaniment of cowbells, drums, and whistles. Vendors prepare to share their authentic Bahamian and American cuisine in booths that align the streets.
