Wynwood Second Saturday
Like its counterpart at the Miami Design District, Wynwood is an emerging neighborhood in a decaying part of town that has been revitalized and is transforming the art scene in Miami, but this is where the likeness stops.
Wynwood is best known for its street art and splashy murals and over 70 galleries and counting.
On Second Saturdays, the place is on overdrive, crowds come to enjoy their art and their food trucks. A must for street art lovers, but if you are not into crowds, definitely not for you.
Saturday 6:00pm to 11:00 pm
Roughly between Biscayne Boulevard and I-95 and NW 36th Street and NW 20th Street.
CAUTION: The area surrounding the Wynwood District is a very doubtful neighborhood, please exercise caution when getting here and back.
