  • About the event

    The GrassRoots Festival and Virginia Key Beach Park Trust presents:
    GrassRoots LIVE! A week long Celebration of South Florida’s rich
    music and arts traditions.  GrassRoots Live! will include live
    performances in clubs and venues in the city of Miami by
    GrassRoots and Miami favorites Wednesday thru Saturday February
    22-25th, plus Music, Arts, Yoga, Beach Activities, Kids Village,
    Food Truck Roundup and more at Historic Virginia Key Beach
    Park, February 25-26th.


    For the past five years the GrassRoots Festival Organization
    has brought the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival to Historic
    Virginia Key Beach Park just outside of Miami, Florida.  This
    year we are bringing world music excellence to popular
    Miami clubs and venues.  Each night will feature a different
    club with a variety of music from Afrobeat to Folk, Colombian
    to Haitian.  There will be several musical choices each
    evening with low or no cover charges. Each night, GrassRoots
    performers will be teamed up with some of the best Miami
    live artists for a very unique experience.

    Confirmed Venues are Wynwood Yard, Lagniappe House, and North Beach Band Shell. 

     

     

     

    Why should you sponsor?

    A lot of tradional
    music and dance
    has been erased in
    time.  
    In order to preserve
    these valuable
    pieces of who we
    are and where we
    come from, we have
    developed a
    program that is a
    celebration of all of
    those things.  
    We open up these
    curiosities in our
    minds and develop
    cultural
    understanding for
     all people.  While
      taking a multi-
      faceted approach
     to preserving and
      protecting these
      arts.

    The Organization I work for has been around for 26 years.  The Finger Lakes GrassRoots festival is one of the oldest Festivals in the country.  We currently produce 6 events per year.

     

    GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance is a
    mission-based (501-c3) organization that hosts
    four music/dance festivals and two sustainability
    fairs a year in three different states across the
    east coast. GrassRoots brings communities of
    multi-cultured backgrounds together through the
    magic of music, art, dance, education, wellness
    and sustainability.
       
    GrassRoots nurtures local artists and talent while
    reaching around the globe to bring world music
    and culture to new audiences, creating environ-
    ments that inspire creativity and foster
    community building.  The impact of GrassRoots
    expands far beyond that which occurs during
    these four-day festivals.  For over 26 years,
    GrassRoots has served to both engage and give
    back to the local and regional communities in
    which we exist by providing financial and
    organizational support to impact positive change.
