Miami Art Basel is finally here. Once again, hundreds of galleries, artists, magazines, and more will be presenting the latest and greatest in art at the Miami Beach Convention Center this weekend. The event turns 21 this year, and it continues to be known as North America’s premiere art festival. 

Art fanatics will be spending their time reviewing new solo presentations, surveys, large-scale installations, and more at the three-day long event. However, many come to Art Basel to also take in all the events and activities occurring throughout Miami. There are so many parties, exhibitions, drops, and events to consider. Thankfully, we rounded up some of the best ones to go to. 

Streetwear enthusiasts can take a break from the convention center by considering fresh releases from Eric Emanuel and Billionaire Boys Club. Fans of street art can certainly rely on the many events being held by the Museum of Graffiti throughout the week. Hip-hop heads can also tap in to concerts featuring Freddie Gibbs or pay a visit to the newly opened The Art of Hip-Hop museum. And of course, many skaters are rolling through the streets of Miami to attend the second annual Virgil Abloh Skating Invitational.
