The Fair has blossomed to encompass numerous special programs including Evenings With ..., Ibero-American Authors Program, Children's Alley, Student Literary Encounters and Antiquarian Annex.

The Fair, in its 30th year, will open Sunday November 17th with the popular Evenings With… series, featuring six nights of readings and discussions with noted authors from the United States and around the world.

On Friday, the Street Fair gets under way. The highlight of the Street Fair is the Festival of Authors, with more than 350 authors reading and discussing their work. Thousands of schoolchildren will help kick off the Street Fair, making the trip downtown Friday to hear authors and participate in Children’s Alley activities.

Memory Lane offers one of the largest, local antique automobile selections.

Million Dollar Alley From Ferrari to Lamborghini and beyond, this is the most expensive address at the Miami International Auto Show.
