Love-Is-In-The-Stars Awards Night Party


Presented by ArtesMiami & U.S. Century Bank.

Feel the love in the stars as we toast the award-winners of our 37th year. Immerse yourself in glitz and glamour inspired by the subject of our closing night film, Mucho Mucho Amor, about legendary Puerto Rican astrologer Walter Mercado. Dance the night away to the Caribbean funk rhythms of live band, Sol and The Tribu.

Tarot card and astrology readers will chart your movie-going future for 2020, and the loving spirit of Walter will alight everyone’s Festival memories. Create your own smudge wand with the Mystical Vibez team and check out Moon and Jai‘s Pisces constellation to let the magic unfold.

Featuring mucho, mucho sequins! There will be chef stations #CuratedByGluttonomy, from Xarles Thomson of Sankuay and Karla Hoyos-tacotomia of Palmar! Delicious culinary bites provided by Carrot Express, Nothing Bundt Cake, Nuts About You, Divieto, Mama’s Guava Bars, and DBakers. Swing by the festival bar for flavorful spirit concoctions by Tito’s Vodka, S. Pellegrino and bold and spicy libations by Bulleit Bourbon. Shoot My Travel makes it fun and easy to book local professional photographers anywhere in the world! Stop by their photo moment to experience it in real life during the festival!
