Smorgasburg Miami celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month (includes video story)

This past weekend, from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, Smorgasburg Miami transformed into a vibrant celebration of Spanish-speaking cultures for Hispanic Heritage Month.

One of the city’s largest outdoor markets, which has locations in Wynwood and South Beach, partnered with renowned Cuban chef Eileen Andrade for a three-day event, featuring over 15 Hispanic vendors serving more than 60 traditional dishes.

The event highlighted live music performances, salsa lessons, family-friendly activities, bars, delicious food and more. It brought together people from diverse cultural backgrounds for a grand fiesta.

“Everyone is very diverse and very welcoming,” said Maxim Cestari, a Connecticut native who appreciates Hispanic culture. “This is a whole month of celebration, so I wanted to have a quesadilla al pastor, enjoy all the vibes and all the people.”
