The Third Annual Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival, organized, planned and executed by volunteers from the Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival Inc., a fiscal sponsor of The Miami Foundation and local leaders of the Overtown Community.

Set on the vibrant main street of NW 3rd Avenue, between 9th and 11th Streets in the Historic Overtown District, this one-day annual festival will come alive once again on June 22, 2013 with local food, art and entertainment. The event will include local church choirs, a school marching bands, and local and national musical artists. Overtown Food vendors will treat festival goers with authentic BBQ and southern cooking, Caribbean flavors, and locally grown produce. Admission to the festival is free.
