THE NATIONAL LGBTQ TASK FORCE ANNOUNCES 31ST ANNUAL WINTER PARTY WEEK-LONG FESTIVAL.

February 28th – March 5th, 2024

Winter Party Welcomed Thousands of Attendees to Miami Beach for its 31st Annual Celebration Raising Vital Funds for the LGBTQ+ Community.

The National LGBTQ Task Force’s Winter Party Festival 2024 made its return to Miami Beach for its 31st anniversary celebration. Winter Party is an annual dance and music festival featuring a week-long series of events benefiting both local and national LGBTQ+ organizations. This year’s festival featured a diverse mix of music, community programming and entertainment. The festival brings in over 10,000 attendees annually and hosts 14 events across nine exhilarating world-class Miami and Miami Beach venues. Guests were treated to upbeat tunes from 17 international DJs including CalagnaDeanneSagi Kariv and more.

Founded in 1994, Winter Party provides a safe haven for the LGBTQ and allied communities to celebrate and live freely. The National LGBTQ Task Force donates a significant portion of the proceeds raised at Winter Party and its sister event, the National LGBTQ Task Force Gala, to like-minded community advocacy groups in South Florida through the LGBTQ+ Equity Fund, a philanthropic collaboration between the Task Force, Our Fund, and The Miami Foundation. Since 2005, the Task Force has given back more than $3.6 million and supported over 100 community organizations in South Florida and will directly fund social justice causes locally and nationally. Winter Party brings nearly $4.2M in revenue to Miami, supporting over 800 local jobs in hospitality, food & beverage, retail, recreation, and entertainment.

Guests are encouraged to reserve tickets to this year’s events, all designed to capture the energetic spirit that is Winter Party. The first two night-time dance parties will feature two new venues to the festival line-up: Ignite will be held at MAD Club Wynwood and showcase two DJs making their Winter Party debut, Leanh and Dawson. HEAT will be held at Wynwood Marketplace and marks the first time in more than a decade that Winter Party is featuring an outdoor nighttime event.The first of Winter Party’s signature events, Under One Sun, will be held at Oasis Wynwood and feature the debut of DJ Derrick Carter to the festival line-up. Winter Party’s premier celebration on the sun-kissed sands of Miami Beach, Beach Party, will host back-to-back DJs GSP and Dan Slater for one epic set bringing a fusion of sounds from all around the world right to the dance floor. The entrance to this year’s Beach Party will be at 10th Street, two blocks south of its traditional home.
