Event Details


Gay8 (Gay Ocho) Festival is a FREE Music, Art, Food and Fun Fest hosted by the Hispanic/Latino/Latinx, LGBTQ+ community! Join 80,000+ people for one day of fun filled with music, dance parties, films, culture, amazing art, live performances, savory foods and fashion shows (for humans and pets lol). The festival attracts people from very different parts of South Florida to celebrate our diversity together in a historic part of town facing widespread gentrification – Little Havana.

Many people have described Gay Ocho as the “thrill of mixing it up” – “the pride of inclusion” – “a blurring of the lines that divide our communties” – very different people coming together in one South Florida community to share an amazing day.

An “arroz con mango” (“stickey mess”) of delight, fun, music, art, food, cafecito, salsa, dancing, parties wrapped in a colorful, historic, magical area that captures the imagination of a wonderful carribean/latin day and night on the town. AND all of it hosted by South Florida’s Hispanic/Latino/Latinx LGBTQ+ community!

It’s truly magical, and it can’t happen without you. Come and #LiveYourStoryHere
