On Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party will be holding our Blue Forum and Fair. There will be booths for meet and greets with candidates and other progressive organizations as well as food and a cash bar. Later in the day, there will be a Mayoral Forum featuring several Democratic candidates for county mayor.
By this time, we will be seeing many more presidential candidates in Florida, so stay tuned for details about special guests at this convention.
Tickets for the Blue Fair & Forum will be $40. Tickets include a free Miami-Dade Dems T-Shirt and a meal. If you only want to attend the candidate forum, tickets are free, and we encourage you to RSVP here.
You won't want to miss this great opportunity for us to gather, learn from each other, and remind ourselves why we're in this fight, just days before we vote in Florida's Presidential Preference Primary.

Florida has closed primaries, and so we encouraged as many voters as possible to register with the Florida Democratic Party by February 18 so they can have a voice in Florida’s March 17 Presidential Preference Primary.
