Nothing weaves together the tapestry of South Florida’s vibrant and diverse cultures better than music. That’s why AARP Miami is sponsoring Jazz in the Gardens, traditionally the inaugural event in South Florida’s music-festival season.

Jazz in the Gardens is the City of Miami Gardens’ premiere entertainment event. The event brings world-renowned talent to Miami Gardens and gives local artists the opportunity to put their music out there for attendees to enjoy. Event-goers find themselves immersed in the rich beats and musical stylings that vibrate from the stage. This year, performers will include Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Fantasia, and Smokey Robinson among others.

The two-day event will take place at the HardRock Stadium on Saturday and Sunday, March 17 and 18. Be sure to visit AARP’s Lounge Tent where AARP members will have exclusive access to mix and mingle with other members, relax and take a break, charge their phones, get water or a cool, delicious popsicle. Catch up with staff and volunteers about what AARP is working on in the South Florida area.

JITG takes place every March. The JITG experience is complemented by scenic beaches, plentiful shopping, incredible golf courses, 5-star restaurants, and many other inviting attractions which make South Florida a “must visit” destination. For tickets visit:
