Memorial Day in Miami is a festive weekend, thanks in no small part to our beautiful beaches and sunny skies. The celebrations for 2024 shouldn't be any different. We'll be honoring the brave men and women who perished serving our country, welcoming the unofficial start of summer in Miami and making the most of our extra day off—be it at a bottomless brunch in Miami or soaking up some rays in South Beach. However you choose to enjoy your three-day weekend, we've got a few ideas to help you take advantage of all Miami has to offer this holiday weekend.

When is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is on the last Monday in May every year. This year it falls on Monday, May 27, 2024.

Is there an official Memorial Day celebration in Miami?

While we don't have parades at the level of New York City, Miami's annual Hyundai Air & Sea Show is how we honor those who’ve given their lives for our country. This year, the free event on Miami Beach takes place on May 25 and 26 from noon to 6:30pm.
