The Fair is an 18-day event that includes Pig Races, a Petting Zoo, Pony Rides, and a European style circus. Not to mention, there are the fair’s two live music shows: Everything Fitz, a family band featuring fiery fiddling and percussive step dancing; as well as Street Beat, a high energy explosion of urban rhythm, hip hop moves, and astonishing break dance acrobatics.

The fair is put on by The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, Inc. a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching their community by promoting education and South Florida agriculture while showcasing and rewarding youth achievement. In its nearly six decade history, The Fair has donated over $8 Million in scholarships, awards and premiums.

5. The Coolest Acts Around at UniverSoul Circus March 1-7

Picture 18With the new show “We Play… Too Much!”, UniverSoul Circus sets the stage for generations of families to come together, sing songs, and even dance in the aisles to hits that span the last six decades. With tracks ranging from Motown classics to today’s Top 40, the most amazing acrobatic routines will be performed in front of a large audience. In the line-up are Chinese aerialists performing a synchronized aerial dance never seen before in the United States; the hottest stunt acrodunk players in the world; an entourage of contortionists who bend and twist their bodies beyond human limits; as well as a daring tiger act.

Where the audience is always part of the show, fans are forewarned, because under the Big Top of hip hop, you never know when you might wind up doing your thing in the center of the ring. Ringmaster Anthony Luewellyn a.k.a “Tony Tone” returns to lead an all star cast of performers that is unlike any traditional circus.
