Opening Party – Miami Rocks: The Miami Pop Festival, 1968

05/18/2018 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

Get decked out in your favorite 1960s outfit and join us for a party on the plaza to open our new photography exhibition on the Miami Pop Festival! This festival was “where the seeds of Woodstock were sown,” and featured Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Chuck Berry, and others. The exhibition, with photos by Ken Davidoff, takes a deeper look into the East Coast’s first rock festival, and we invite you to rock out with us as we celebrate the opening! Enjoy live music, with special guests Leon Hendrix and Lee Tiger, complimentary drinks, and a first look at the exhibit. Click here to register!

A big thank you to our event partners and sponsors including the New Tropic, Big 105.9, Purple Haze Properties, Concrete Beach Brewery, Titos Vodka, and the Lee Tiger Band.
