Start the Year Off Right!

2019 is finally here, giving you the opportunity to start the year off on the right foot. A good year begins with good people and fun times, so mark these upcoming events on your calendar! Reminisce on Art Basel with some additional art fairs, stare at the full moon while drinking some beer, and attend a weekend of fashion, music, and art!

Jan. 11-13

If you attended Art Basel in Miami and are dying to feast your eyes upon more art, look no further than the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair, presented by Art Miami and sponsored by the City of West Palm Beach. Quality pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries will be on display in a 65,000 sq. ft. pavilion as art collectors and connoisseurs alike stroll around. Over 50 top international galleries will showcase their work, coming from countries like Japan, Portugal, and Venezuela!

Jan. 12

Florida Stone Crab Season will reel in the freshest and tastiest catches of the day at the 8th Annual Riverwalk Stone Crab & Seafood Festival. Fort Lauderdale’s favorite seafood restaurants will be cookin’ up delicious dishes that start at just $5, and cold drinks, music, and more will be a part of the action as well. A beer garden by Stephen’s Distributing will be there for the adults, and hermit crab races by Finster Murphy’s will keep the kids entertained!

Jan. 12

At Boxelder Craft Beer Market, prepare to drink to your heart’s content at Juicy: A craft beer festival. IPAs and fruited sour beer will dominate the menu, with a ton of breweries already confirmed on the list like Angry Chair Brewing, Aslin Brewing, Civil Society, Hidden Springs and more. Your ticket includes a custom festival glass to pour up those brews, and you’ll need it too—it’s all you can drink!

Jan. 17-20

Gym rats and fitness gurus will want to sign up for one of the biggest fitness events of the year: Wodapalooza! This is the 8th year of the WZA Miami CrossFit Festival and certainly not the smallest as they promise over 100 fitness brands, 600 volunteers, 2000 athletes, and tens of thousands of spectators! If you wish to participate, the annual festival will have tons of competitions and challenges as you face off against other dedicated gym goers. Cash prizes will be awarded, with some even doling out $25K!

There’s few things that are better than enjoying a view of the full moon on the beach. It’s peaceful, relaxing, and beautiful. The only thing that could make it better is half priced Blue Moon beer, and luckily for you, that’s exactly what’s offered at Bamboo Beach Tiki Bar’s Full Moon Party event! Live music will be spun by DJ Carter Kidd, great food will be served up all night, and full moon massages, hair braiding, yoga, and other services will be offered as well.

Jan. 25-27

Three days of art, music, and fashion will conquer Wynwood this month at Wynwood Life 2019! Over 100 arts and crafts vendors and food trucks will be a part of the Art section of the festival, with painters, drawers, designers, and illustrators showing off their work. When you’re ready to give your eyes a break and tune into your ears, over 20 live bands and DJs will occupy the Live Music Stage. Finally, at the Style Lounge, become one with fashion as you gawk at the designs on the runway during daily fashion shows! This is an event you won’t want to skip out on!
