THOUSANDS DESCEND ON MIAMI FOR THE NATIONAL LGBTQ TASK FORCE’S ANNUAL WINTER PARTY FESTIVAL FROM MARCH 1-7, 2023
Winter Party Festival 2023 Will Feature Ten Thousand Attendees, Twelve Signature Events, Twelve International DJs, and Seven World-Class Venues Across Miami Beach All for One Good Cause
As part of the year-long 50th anniversary celebration of the National LGBTQ Task Force, Winter Party Festival 2023 will return to Miami Beach from March 1 – 7. Winter Party Festival is an annual dance and music festival with a week-long series of events benefiting the local and national LGBTQ community.
The festival is a celebration of community, produced by the Task Force to raise critical funds for the LGBTQ movement, and will feature a diverse mix of people, music, and entertainment.
Winter Party Festival brings in over ten thousand attendees annually, with twelve signature events and twelve international DJs hosted in seven exhilarating world-class Miami Beach venues.
Founded in 1994, Winter Party Festival is a safe haven for the LGBTQ and allied community to celebrate and live freely.
The National LGBTQ Task Force donates a significant portion of the proceeds raised at Winter Party and its sister event, the National LGBTQ Task Force Gala, to like-minded community advocacy groups in South Florida through the LGBTQ+ Equity Fund, a philanthropic collaboration between the Task Force, Our Fund, and The Miami Foundation.
Since 2005, the Task Force has given back more than $3.3 million and supported over 90 community organizations in South Florida and will directly fund social justice causes locally and nationally.
Winter Party brings nearly $4.2M in revenue to Miami, supporting over 800 local jobs in hospitality, food & beverage, retail, recreation, and entertainment.
The 2023 Winter Party Festival is supported in part by grant funding from the Miami Beach Visitor & Convention Authority and Miami-Dade Dept of Cultural Affairs.
Winter Party Festival DJ highlights include Jace M from the Detroit band Thots & Prayers; Atlanta-based DJ and Producer J Warren, known for his high-energy and uplifting vocals; Marti Frieson, a rising star from Houston known for his versatile sound; Israeli DJ and Producer Orel Sabag, whose Brazilian inspired beats feature electric vocals; Brazilian DJ Ana Flor, known on the festival circuits of Europe and Brazil; Berlin-based Winter Party Festival veteran Micky Friedmann, known for his signature upbeat sounds; Karsten Sollors, whose Chicago house sound resonates around irresistible grooves and soulful vocals; Calagna, with their genre-defying mix of hypnotic beats; Grammy nominated DJ Abel known for his infused Latin beats and a regular staple at some of the largest circuit events in the world and Tom Stephan, whose sound was born out of the NYC after-hours scene and blended with his new home in East London.

About the National LGBTQ Task Force:
The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice and equality for LGBTQ people. We are building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives.
Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights.
These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you.
