Miami Beach Arts in the Parks events feature a variety of cultural offerings such as concerts, plays, musical performances and other acts, and are free and open to the public. The Arts in the Parks program further elevates Miami Beach’s role as a leader in the cultural arts.

Arts in the Parks launched in 2006 in response to the results of community surveys and focus groups that indicated residents would like to see more free cultural events. The Miami Beach Arts in the Parks program hopes to increase the community rating of cultural activities, which is part of the City’s overall strategic plan.

The Cinema Series at SoundScape, also an Arts in the Parks program, continues its free film series on Wednesday nights at SoundScape.
