Join us on The Porch starting at
6 p.m. for a free community BBQ to kick things off! Spirits courtesy of Barcardi USA.
6 p.m. / Latin-Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Mr. Pauer spins his unique Miami sound, “Electrópico,” a fusion of electronica and music born between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn that includes Salsa, Zouk, Reggae, Cumbia, Dancehall, Merengue, and Kuduro.
7 p.m. / Internationally-recognized literary activity Lucha Libro is a twist on Lucha Libre, Mexico’s version of pro wrestling, where competitors put on masks and pseudonyms to duke it out in a ring, except that this event has no violence, but rather literary “wrestling.” New writers don masks, and head onto a stage where they’re given three random prompts and five minutes to write a short story. Hosted by DJ Hottpants (especially created for Miami Book Fair).
8 p.m. / Representing an authentic mix of cultures that is Miami, Los Wizzards create magic through music – funk, pop, and jazz styles – with a performance that invites the audience to dance and be part of the experience.
