Memorial Day in Miami attracts a lot of visitors, mainly due to our beautiful beaches that make for a perfect perch to kick back and enjoy all the festivities. The weekend-long celebrations for 2023 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 that 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 29, 2023.

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.
