Experience Wynwood Life A Cultural Street Festival — a festival of art, fashion, food, and music happening Friday, April 25 – Sunday, April 27. A Three-Day Festival Celebrating Miami and Its Artists featuring some of Miami’s most respected graffiti crews.
Wynwood is ready to light up with people and all that makes this eclectic neighborhood unique. Organizers expect to see close to 20,000 people, perusing art, crafts, jewelry and over 100 vendors all the while being entertained by live art and music and noshing on local fare from dozens of area restaurants.
We would love to talk about the entire event in detail, but we know if you join our blog you want to know about the food! which is expected to be awesome with a variety of flavors and tastes for everybody. Here is a short list of food vendors expected to be there: Crepe Maker, Surf and Turf, C&R Food Concepts, Isla Bonita, Miami Club Rum Bars, Doña Arepa Inc, Happy Coconut, and many more. Also expected to be at the event are up and coming food artisans and one very special gourmet shop:
Roots and Freens (Short for Roots, Fruits and Greens) – Will feature a juice called the “Art Walker” dedicated to Wynwood’s Art Walk. At Wynwood Life they will be showcasing 60% of their menu. Mid-way through the event they will offer a different item from their selection. The “Art Walker” consists of carrot, celery, cucumber, and orange. It is an anti-aging and glorifying juice.
Roots and Freens specializes in organic, raw, hand-made, gourmet food and cold-pressed juices to enhance body function and ultimately lighten your life.
Mama’s Guava Bars– Mama’s “Original” Guava Bars contain sugar, wheat flour, butter and guava. At the Wynwood Life Festival, they will offer a new healthy alternative to their ever-popular Guava Bar – “The Naked Wynwood Bar” – Which contains almond flour, honey, and coconut oil, to replace some of the high fat ingredients and satisfy those health nuts out there!
