Pack your shades and your suits for a sophisticated and vibrant start to summer. Right from the heart of Miami Beach, every day begins with sunshine and ends with a toast to tomorrow’s adventures. This Memorial Day in Miami, claim your front-row seat to the season’s spectacle — complete with the roar of jets overhead and the shimmer of the ocean at your feet. After all, there’s nowhere else like Winter Haven Hotel to launch your iconic summer escape.

Commemorate Memorial Day in the City

Experience the pinnacle of a Miami Memorial Day weekend with the Hyundai Air & Sea Show, famously dubbed “The Greatest Show Above the Earth.” Sip a cool drink on the sand as fighter jets soar across the skies and powerboats slice through the waves. In honor of Memorial Day, there will be military tributes and air and sea demonstrations.

Afterward, stay for the Music Explosion, featuring the U.S. Army’s “As You Were” band, U.S. Air Force Drill Team, and The Miami Beach Classical Music Festival Orchestra, plus an explosive fireworks display over Lummus Park. Throughout the weekend, wander through the expansive FPL Patriot Display Village, where interactive displays stretch over four city blocks along Ocean Drive, right in the thick of the action. With Winter Haven’s prime location offering unmatched access, it’s all happening right outside your door.

Beyond the show, the weekend is packed with Memorial Day events in Miami, like concerts and live performances across the city. For those looking to dance into the sunset this holiday weekend, don your chicest white attire and sway to the beats of soca, Afrobeats, and hip-hop at the AfroCode Miami All White Memorial Day Party
