Take a stroll down the Wynwood Art Walk

It’s a Miami tradition unlike any other.  Wynwood Art Mural

Every second Saturday of the month, Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood transforms into a cultural hub. One of Miami’s most iconic events, the Wynwood Art Walk, features a world-renowned collection of murals, vendors, food trucks, music and more. It’s a tradition the community takes great pride in and visitors take great enjoyment in celebrating.

The Art Walk, which takes place on the streets of Wynwood Marketplace, is free and open to the public, creating an inclusive atmosphere that fosters creativity, open-mindedness and the freedom to express yourself. Turn your head to one side and you’ll see an artisan market with threads and crafts from local artists; turn the other way and you’ll see gourmet food trucks offering dishes from all over the world. There’s also live music, with local DJs playing everything from hip-hop to EDM, pop, rock and more. All of this, of course, is just a backdrop to Wynwood’s iconic art installations, which seem to come alive during Art Walk.

The Wynwood Miami block party also offers attendees with the opportunity to enjoy tasty craft beers and cocktails. With Miami’s top bartenders and mixologists at the scene and drinking games everywhere you turn, you’re bound to have a great time. Plus, if you RSVP online ahead of time, you’ll receive a complimentary cocktail! Upcoming walks will be held on November 10th and December 8th from 12 p.m. until 3 a.m.

If you’re looking to experience the Art Walk for yourself, there’s no better place to stay than the Hilton Miami Downtown. We’re conveniently located just a few minutes from Wynwood, as well as South Beach and the best of Miami nightlife. Book your stay with us today to take part in a unique Miami celebration.
