Avoiding Ultra Music Festival: The Ten Best EDM-Free Things to Do This Weekend
|This isn't everyone's idea of a good time.|
Big, banging EDM, lasers, mesh tops, Molly, public nudity -- it all takes a special kind of person to enjoy. With four more days of Ultra ahead, it's only fair to consider the people whose idea of fun does not involve Skrillex and Deadmau5 -- the type of people who probably have no clue how to even pronounce those two names.
From fashion to arts to sports, there's something going on for all of you more tame kids this weekend.
- How Ultra Music Festival and WMC Are Hurting Miami

The 15th annual Miami International Fashion Week at the Miami Beach Convention Center is back, and this year's schedule is the most promising yet. As the largest international and Hispanic fashion event in the U.S., it brings together top emerging and established fashion designers hailing from as near as Miami to as far as India. If you're in the mood for fashion, one of MIFW's weekend shows is a sure way to get your fix. Friday's program includes the Swimwear Showcase, Prêt-A-Porter Showcase, Bridal Couture Show, a pop-up boutique, and if you're hungry (and what fashionista isn't?), visit the Culinary Style Café featuring Executive Chef Steve Sabatino who with Whole Foods Market will prepare a three-course tasting menu. Trés yum.
March 20-23, 6 p.m.- 11 p.m., Miami Beach Convention Center, Hall D, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Call 305-673-7311 or visit miamibeachconvention.com.
Admit it. It's probably been years since you've last been to The Youth Fair. But there's good news for nostalgia junkies: It's exactly as you remember it. This weekend is as good at time as any to relive your childhood in the best non-ironic way possible. Grab some tickets, ride the Cyclone and the swinging ship, and pet some animals at the petting zoo for old times' sake. Follow it up with some fried dough, fried Oreos, fried Kool-Aid, all fried everything. Throwing up is optional.
Price: $10 for general admission, children 5 and under are free.
Saturdays & Sundays at 12 p.m., The Youth Fair, Coral Way (SW 24th St.) at 112th Ave., Miami, Call 305-223-7060 or visit fairexpo.com.
