The Deal

On April 5 and 6, local vendors set up booths across Fruit & Spice Park to celebrate the fourth annual Redland Blues & Barbecue Festival, which combines the spicy taste of barbecue with the sweet sounds of live blues and country-music performances from such acts as Iko Iko and The Jay Blues Band. Families can enjoy a variety of youth activities including pony rides and a live wildlife show, and purchase items such as barbecue, funnel cake, and freshly roasted corn on the cob from local vendors. Craft beer by Anheuser-Busch is also available. Children 11 and under are admitted free. The Redland Blues & Barbecue Festival takes place on Saturday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is sponsored by Miami Dade County Commissioner Lynda Bell, Miccosukee Tribe of Indians, Eagle Brands, and Community Bank of South Florida.

The Fruit and Spice Park

At The Fruit and Spice Park operated by the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Department, a 37-acre subtropical realm nestled in the heart of the historic Redland community, visitors flock to surround themselves with tropical agriculture. Featuring more than 500 varieties of exotic fruits, herbs, spices, and nuts from around the world, almost 200 varieties of mangos, almost 100 varieties of bamboo, more than a dozen jackfruit trees, and numerous other exotic edibles, the array of plants and foliage is grown and maintained on-site. Guests can sample fallen fruit, learn with a staff of experts that regularly conducts classes, workshops, and botanical tours year-round, visit and herb and vegetable garden, stroll through shady banana groves, and take in the majestic African baobab trees. A gift shop allows visitors to take home unique gifts and treats, and the Mango Café offers up lunch and smoothies.
