3 Weeks Until the 2008 Winter Party Festival / South Beach

There are just 3 weeks left before the 2008 Winter Party Festival at South Beach.

Launched in 1994 as a one-time charity dance event on the sands of beautiful South Beach, Winter Party Festival has evolved into a six-day festival benefiting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community on the national and local levels. Over 10,000 guests from all over the United States and abroad attend at least one of the 20 events - including music, fashion, art, comedy and more -- that take place in Miami and Miami Beach.

The Festival climaxes with the Winter Party Beach Party, a dance event on the sands of South Beach that draws a crowd of more than 5,500 revelers. The 15th Annual Beach Party will be the centerpiece of the 2008 Winter Party Festival.This fabulous celebration, benefitting the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, is also an important fundraiser for the LGBT community. To date, the Festival and its sister event, the Miami Recognition Dinner, have raised over $1.6 million for organizations serving the South Florida LGBT community. No matter where your interests lie, the Festival offers something for you. Winter Party Festival - it's MUCH more than a day at the beach.

Opening on Saturday, 23 February, here is the schedule for the 2008 Winter Party Festival. Which will close on Monday, 3 March.
