The summer of 1969. Moon landings and the very first Woodstock. A season of peace and love, also a time when the center for music and togetherness was located in the beautiful Coconut Grove neighborhood.
Thanks to the Coconut Grove BID, we’re reviving that special moment in the historic neighborhood’s past, and transforming Peacock Park into our very own day of peace and music! We’re paying homage to the epic festival with a Tribute to Woodstock in honor of its 50th anniversary. Swing by for outdoor festivities to kick off the summer with great vibes, live music, artisan vendors, art activations and all the things we love to gather for. Enjoy two special 60s tribute sets by Miami’s very own musical songstress, Shira Lee. Expect to hear folk, jam, and rock-fueled adaptations of Woodstock classics and more. Explore art activations, kids activities, and refreshing summer eats & drinks while you take in the happy Grove neighborhood.
ALSO — Bike Coconut Grove will offer their popular free bike valet parking for the event from 5-8 p.m. Bike to the event, forget parking hassles, leave your bike with the valet, and you won’t have to worry about where to park it safely. Attendants will watch your bike throughout the event. Just look for the “Free Bike Valet” sign on the hill below Glass and Vine, off McFarlane Rd.
