Winter Party Festival Coming to South Beach in March

Author: , January 5th, 2014

Miami BeachLife, they say, is a bitch, but if you are heading to Miami for the Winter Party, it’s a beach — a giant oceanfront dance floor in ultra-glamorous South Beach.

To the east, the gentle waves of the Atlantic Ocean lap up to the shore only a few yards from you; to the west is the deco-and-neon skyline of Ocean Drive; and all around you are thousands of hot, muscular men packed into tiny swimsuits or gym shorts — along with a generous smattering of equally scantily clad bodacious women.

As the music wafts over you, you close your eyes and tell yourself, “This has to be a dream. A dream, or I’ve died and gone to heaven, because no place and nothing on earth is this good.” Then you reopen your eyes and realize that the dance floor sprawling over the beach is real, and all of those men are very, very real.

Winter Party Coming to Miami at the End of February

Author: , February 15th, 2012

Miami White PartyEvery year at the end February, party boys and girls flock to the warmth of Miami for the Winter Party Festival, an annual bacchanalia of fun in the sun. Beach fetes, dance parties, shopping, cultural and community events are specifically tailored for men, women, leather aficionados and circuit boys. It all culminates in a spectacular all-day dance party set right alongside the ocean in the heart of South Beach. Winter Party Festival 2012, scheduled for February 29th thru March 5th, is once again set to live up to its reputation as the hottest party in the world.

“This is our 18th year, and the Beach Party is always the centerpiece, a huge event with the Art Deco district in the background,” said Festival Co-Chair Chad Richter, who has volunteered his organizational services for the past eight years. “But Miami has evolved into more than just a beach town; there is much more to do than just dancing or laying at the beach, and we are trying to give that to our guests.”

The Winter Party Festival is one of the year’s two largest fundraisers for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the other being their annual October Recognition Dinner for South Florida LGBT organizations.

Miami’s Winter Party Coming in Early March

Author: , February 4th, 2012

Miami Beach Winter Party 2012Before Miami Beach Gay Pride takes over Ocean Drive in April, the 12th Annual Winter Party Festival rolls into town for three days of dancing under the sun (held March 2-4, 2012). Consider it an amped-up amuse-bouche for the celebratory fundraising season; the events benefit local Miami-Dade LGBT organizations, as well as the lawyerly set at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Some $1.2 million has been raised since 2004.

And while the event has always reeled in an international crowd, especially our brothers and sisters to the south (Friday’s Brazilian Heaven & Hell pool party is a major highlight), this year lays it on Latin-style with a party organized by Rome’s Gay Village.

Italy’s biggest gay event, still running high off its multi-week, award-winning appearance at last year’s EuroPride, is a hugely popular summer to-do in Rome, drawing 300,000 guests from around the globe to its 10-week-long schedule of events and parties – plus open-air gym and outdoor cinema – staged throughout a 16-acre park. In Miami, that energy transforms into Boiling Point: Rome is Burning, on Sunday, March 4.

Miami Winter PartyTired of the cold and snow? Head south to “the magic city” for the Winter Party, March 2-7th. It’s all about sun, fun, great parties and an amazing cause. The event helps support the work of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Chad Richter, Chair of the Winter Party gave me a sneak peek at this year’s festivities.

JF: Each year the Winter Party is a must-attend event. What can partygoers expect this year?

CR: Bigger, Better, Hotter! We continue to raise the bar with our Winter Party Beach Party and Under One Sun Pool Party and all of our dance events. This year we are reminding guests that here in Miami Beach they can expect to have the HOTTEST WINTER IN THE WORLD and we mean that not only in temperature but with body heat and music beats too!
