Burger Beast has loved croquetas since he was a little beast.
When he would open his lunchbox at school, everyone was perplexed.
They had never seen such a thing, but once he shared one of his Cuban meat stix, he became the most popular kid at the table.
His love for croquetas has never waned, only grown by leaps and bounds.
All Burger Beast ever wanted to do as a grown-up was to share this love with his familia, the people of Miami.
So, he created Croqueta Palooza, and the rest is croqueta history.
The Croqueta Palooza celebrates everything that is special about living in the 305.
”Of all the food festivals that take place in this town (and there are plenty), this event tasted, felt and sounded the most Miami.” – edible South Florida
2020 CROQUETA PALOOZA SPECIAL EDITION
Believe it or not, Croqueta Palooza came back in 2020 for its 7th annual edition. Unfortunately, it was not the type of event we wanted, but until an actual indoor event can happen at a regular capacity, it’s the best we could do.
