To bring South Floridians together at the festival, which strives to provide music, workshops and events that nourish both brain and body

To bring South Florida together through music, Knight Foundation funding will support the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music, Art & Dance, a four-day event that seeks to nourish minds, bodies and souls. The event will feature South Florida musicians and visual artists, a dance tent with workshops, a stage dedicated to the best of world music and a sustainability fair featuring green businesses and organizations. On site, participants can take a Salsa dance class, help build community structures for the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, learn carpentry skills, experience yoga and tai chi, and dance to the sounds of South Florida's best musicians as well as world class international artists.
