The Town of Surfside will start the new year celebrating under the stars.

In a fresh creative concept, tourists, residents and visitors are invited to enjoy the best Surfside has to offer every first Saturday of the month starting on Jan. 7, 2023, extending until April. The monthly night will reside alfresco in front of Town Hall at 9293 Harding Avenue. There will be three different activation zones that will hold creative acts, live performances, music, food and local vendors. There will be a designated adult lounge as well as kid activity areas, guaranteeing an amusing time for people of all ages.

The Surfside Tourist Board proudly presents a new event encompassing community, variety and culture. The family-friendly celebration will have different themes throughout the 2023 season. Each Saturday night, expect to be surprised with diverse acts, immersive activities and presentations.

Longtime Surfside resident Sara Liss has been tapped as the series producer. Liss has decades of experience in the entertainment curation space and will bring her knowledge, passion and creativity to each nightly event.

“We are excited to be bringing some of Miami's best local performers and musicians to this open-air event where outdoor cafe-style seating, family activities and delicious food and beverages will create the ultimate al fresco experience for Surfside's and our Miami community,” said Liss. “Join hundreds of Miami locals for a night of outdoor music, food, dancing, beverages, Instagrammable photo ops, themed activations and so much more.”
