WINTER PARTY 2016 GUIDE

The countdown to Winter Party Festival® 2016 has begun. March 2 to March 7, 2016 marks the start of Miami’s most anticipated LGBT throw down – Winter Party Festival 2016. Over 10,000 international hotties (and I mean HOTTIES) will gather for an extended weekend of mayhem, hook-ups, and standing, posing, dancing, drinking and living out quintessential South Beach hedonism. Best of all, this circuit scene is a party with a cause, with ticket proceeds benefiting the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (read between the lines – tickets are tax deductible).





As per usual, several rotating local venues downtown and on the beach will transform ordinary spaces into late night party palladiums for Winter Party. The Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach will welcome guests as the 2016 Winter Party Festival host hotel and the Sunday Beach Party (photos) is one of the “don’t miss” events.

Below is a mini travel guide to help you prepare for the legendary Winter Party. Carpe diem and thank the weather gods for some great South Beach winter sunshine!
