Croqueta Palooza is the MOST Miami Food Festival

The Croqueta Palooza festival celebrates everything that is special about living in South Florida.

”Of all the food festivals that take place in this town (and there are plenty), this event tasted, felt and sounded the most Miami.”

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.
