Celebrating Miami Marine Stadium
From the roar of hydroplanes to dazzling performances on the bay, it was here that Miami turned its cultural heartbeat into a spectacle the world couldn’t resist.
Join Coral Gables Museum on Thursday, January 9, from 6:30-10:30 pm as they relive those glory days with two legends who once graced the stadium’s dramatic floating stage – Jimmy Buffett and Gloria Estefan.
Hosted by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this celebration will shine a spotlight on these two musical icons as NBC 6 anchor Jackie Nespral interviews the stars about their memories of the stadium’s past, as well as their hopes for its comeback as a world class sports and performance venue. Jimmy Buffett will close the evening with a short performance.
All guests will receive a one-year membership to the National Trust, as well as free admission to “Concrete Paradise,” the Coral Gables Museum’s critically-acclaimed exhibition dedicated to Miami Marine Stadium. Complimentary cocktails and heavy appetizers will be served throughout the evening. There will also be a silent auction featuring original stadium seats signed by the stars.
Proceeds benefit the National Trust's work to restore the stadium, as well as our host for the evening – the Coral Gables Museum.
Important note: Doors will open for general admission at 6:30 pm. The program will begin at 7:30 pm, and seating will be unassigned. We expect the program to conclude at 9:00 pm. Afterwards, attendees will have free access to "Concrete Paradise" until 10:30 pm.
