Now gearing up for its 10th anniversary season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is a cultural magnet offering great performances to entertainment-hungry audiences of all ages and backgrounds. It is vibrant, inventive and nurturing; serving as the catalyst for a new urban spirit in Miami’s Town Square.
Set in the heart of downtown Miami and designed by world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli, the Arsht Center is one of the world’s leading performing arts organizations and venues. Since opening in 2006, the Arsht Center, a 501C3 non-profit organization, has emerged as a leader in presenting innovative programming that mirrors South Florida’s diversity as well as a catalyst for billions of dollars in new development in the downtown area.
Spotlighting legends and serving as a launch pad for local artists to make their mark on the international stage, the Center presents nearly 500 events each year across its eight flexible, state-of-the-art performance spaces. The Center programs 12 signature series, including the largest jazz series in South Florida, the biggest flamenco festival on the East Coast, and a robust program of new theatrical works as well as free programming for the community and an arts education program that serves nearly 30,000 children each year.
As Miami’s new Town Square, the Arsht Center also houses Brava!, a fine dining restaurant; the Café at Books & Books in the historic Carnival Arts Tower and a weekly Farmers Market.
