Hang With the Surfside Locals at Third Thursday’s

By: Surfside Feb 19, 2020

Many travelers these days are looking for a less formal tour guide of the city they’re visiting and instead seek the local’s experience. They often find that some of the best adventures are off the beaten path, and their favorite memories were when they connected with the residents, dined at a family-owned restaurant, or bought a trinket at a boutique they stumbled upon. If your visit to Surfside coincides with the monthly Third Thursday block party, you have the unique opportunity to experience all of the things that make Miami’s Uptown Beachtown so great in one evening.   

For the past 12 years, Third Thursday’s has been a fun and free event that people of all ages look forward to. It’s always a family-friendly occasion, with a variety of entertainment and vendors that locals and visitors alike can enjoy. The February block party on the 20th has a “Yoga & Wellness Drum Circle” theme while the March 19 event is a “Tropical Chalk Walk” featuring a large, interactive chalk-based art mural, live reggae music, a tropical animal encounter from Jungle Island, and other activities. 

Here’s more on all the exciting offerings that will be taking place for this month. 


February’s theme centers around wellness as it’s close to the start of the new year, and many people are focused on their overall well-being and new year’s resolutions. This Third Thursday event will have a variety of activities for those who are curious about some of the recent wellness trends. Start the evening by breaking a sweat with Exhale Spa, as they will be hosting a 30-minute barre class and a flow-style yoga. For a more holistic approach, there will also be a crystal healing class and essential oils giveaway, along with a succulent planting station by local vendors. 


After working up an appetite with some physical activities, stroll along 95th Street to browse all of the food offerings. For those who are staying fit and healthy, nosh on a freshly made acai bowl from Wavey Bowls. If you’re looking for a heartier dinner, Backyard BBQ will have an assortment of kosher barbecue eats to satisfy. There will also be refreshments and snacks, like handmade gourmet popsicles by Morelia Gourmet Paletas and ice custard courtesy of Rita’s Italian Ice.

It wouldn’t be a block party without some great tunes to jam out to. This month’s local band Yamokah will bring their unique sound to Surfside for all to enjoy. Described as a combination of electro with rock, funk, and reggae world music, these guys know how to have a good time. They have a residency at Bodega South Beach and have also played at The Regent Cocktail Club recently. 

Whether you’re visiting Surfside, a new resident, or a longtime community member, Third Thursday’s has something for everyone to enjoy and is a truly authentic local experience. The block party takes places on 95th Street between Collins Avenue and Harding Avenue from 6pm to 9pm. It’s a complimentary event, but if you register in advance through Eventbrite here, you’ll receive a free gift at check-in while supplies last.
