The best June events in Miami prove the city’s keeping the summer doldrums at bay. We may have celebrated Miami Beach Pride with a 10-day festival back in April but that doesn’t mean we can’t do it all over again as part of National Pride Month. Beyond the LGTBQ+ fun to look forward to this month, there’s lots of fresh theater and exciting exhibitions to get excited about—not to mention that visits to a Miami museum make for an excellent thing to do in Miami when it rains, which is the not-so-great thing about June. It’s rainy and it’s also the start of hurricane season in Miami, so brace for that too. Find a list of the best June events in Miami below.

RECOMMENDED: The best things to do in Miami

Time Out Market Miami
  • Time Out Market

Vinya Wine's sommelier Allegra Angelo takes you on a wine-tasting journey you might want to look away from. The theme here is not judging a book by its cover or, in this case, a bottle by its less-than-attractive label. You'll sip with friends and together vote on which ugly label tastes the best at this fun, interactive tasting. 

  • Time Out Market

Forget the lame, deadpan number callers you’ve experienced at other game nights because we’ve got fierce divas taking over bingo night at Time Out Market Miami. The city’s most in-demand ladies keep you entertained with a speedy two-hour round, featuring extended happy hour pricing on cocktails for players and a few $25 Time Out Market cards up for grabs. Games are free to join and groups of all ages and sizes are welcome to try their luck at filling up a card.

On June 4, the Market kicks off its new Disco Punch Brunch—combining three of our favorite pastimes into one fun afternoon. Every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 3pm, order up boozy punch bowls, groove to tunes by DJ Cecilia and tuck into brunch classics, including avocado toast from Plants & Bowls, chicken and waffles from Chick’n Jones and a juicy cheeseburger from Little Liberty. Each large-format cocktail serves four and is priced at $50, but there’s no limit to how many you can order. This is brunch—and this is South Beach—after all. Sat, Sun noon–3pm

  • Time Out Market

After a successful run at Time Out Market Chicago, we’re partnering again with SoFar Sounds in Miami for an intimate summer music series. We’ll be bringing three talented local acts to the Time Out stage, plus great vibes and our regular mix of stellar food and drink. The best part about a SoFar set? The artists remain a mystery right up until showtime. Use promo code TOMMGUEST5 for 15% off the show.

  • Time Out Market

What’s the measure of a good DJ? Is it a name, popularity, playlist or all of the above? For us, it’s the number of times we find ourselves reaching for our cell phones to Shazam a track during a set. If that’s you too, you’ll want to head to Time Out Market Miami for its new DJ series with Violet House, which brings in some of the city’s top turntable pros for special weekend sets. Stop by on select Fridays and Saturdays for a night of music and late-night drink specials (9–11pm)—and, whatever you do, keep your phone handy.

This interactive experience exposes people of all ages to the forensic science and history of one of the world’s most recognized crime-solving detectives. Short of taking folks across the pond, guests will be transported to Holmes’ London, where they’ll get to participate in a little sleuthing of their own. The exhibition comprises separate areas: Dr. Conan Doyle's Study, presenting the scientific and literary ideas that inspired the author to pen the exciting Holmes chronicles; a place for investigators to conduct their own detective work using a book full of clues; Sherlock Holmes in Baker Street, which puts guests right in the middle of the action at 221B Baker Street, London, where Dr. Watson and Holmes get to cracking; and an area for pop-culture enthusiasts to embrace all kinds of Sherlockian collectibles.
