Over the past 13 years Jazz in the Gardens (JITG) has grown to an event Juggernaut and helped to place the city of Miami Gardens in the spotlight. With growth comes expansion, and that’s exactly what the major musical festival has done by adding auxiliary events that lead into Jazz in the Gardens weekend.
Check out four Pre-Jazz in the Gardens events you should attend this week.
Film. Music. Art. Culture Conference– This conference dives into the business side of the entertainment industry with professional giving gems on how to succeed. The event is hosted by Grammy Award winning singer and song writer Rico Love and features Hip Hop Star Trina and many more. The event takes place Thursday March 15th 8am-5pm.

Poetry In the Gardens– It’s no secret to many that Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert loves poetry and credits it to helping him academically when he was student. It was his brainchild to bring a first class poetry contest to the city of Miami Gardens. He did and it gives poets from around the country and locally a chance to showcase their talents and win a grand prize. Last year the winner was awarded a grand prize of $10,000. The event takes place Thursday March 15. More details on the flyer below.
