Art Basel Miami Madness

Every year the beginning of December marks the time when everyone’s mind gears toward the holidays – but not in Miami. The city goes into an “Art Basel” frenzy. As one of the largest international art fairs, Art Basel Miami, attracts 75,000+ visitors throughout the week. The explosive influx of world-renowned artists, pop culture celebrities, public figures, and affluent scions creates a glitzy, “cannot-miss” hype around the seven day event. This year’s pop icon appearances include: Miley Cyrus, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Usher, Joe Jonas, Kim Kardashian, Usain Bolt, A$AP Rocky, and even Paris Hilton who deejayed at Wall Miami.

Art Basel is the largest exhibition taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, however, the term is commonly used to describe the week long art fair, formally called Miami Art Week. The fair spans across Miami Beach, Midtown, the Design District, Wynwood, and beyond.

Just at the peak of Art Basel when the sidewalks were overflowing and road congestion was backed up for miles, a protest hit the streets which made driving a nightmare.  But the ParkJockey Team would not be slowed, and assisted drivers to find the most accessible parking locations.  Throughout the week ParkJockey taught visitors and locals alike how to master the art of parking during the chaos of it all.

The ParkJockey team wasn’t content simply solving Basel’s parking problems and was caught in the artistic vibes flowing through the city.  ParkJockey had an interactive Art Basel inspired painting activity in order to stimulate people’s inner artistic ability! Throughout the week ParkJockey customers and Art Basel visitors of all ages stopped to contribute to the Miami HEAT and ParkJockey mural. ParkJockey also handed out Miami HEAT t-shirts to those apart of the HEAT Nation family! At some point, a local artist got ahold of one of our t-shirts and turned it into his own artwork at a live demonstration in Wynwood!

Aside from the individual convenience of the app, the Miami Herald makes the point that, “An estimated 30 percent of traffic is actually looking for a parking place, allowing ParkJockey to make a difference in  reducing carbon emissions and city traffic congestion”.

ParkJockey Provides Convenient Parking for the HeatNation


ParkJockey Miami is proud to be featured in the Culture section of  The Miami New Times  as the official parking partner of the  Miami HEAT. The home opener for Miami was last Tuesday, October 30th, 2014, and marked a great start for this year’s NBA season. ParkJockey Miami has already begun to  reduce the stress of parking for the  HeatNation and proud to be a partner of the Miami HEAT!


Scott Rosen, General Manager for Miami, was interviewed by  Miami New Times to give more insight into ParkJockey’s presence in the city, “We probably have about 100 locations with access to 15,000 spaces. We have lots from as far south as Coconut Grove to as far north as Port Canaveral”. Scott continued, “it’s very simple — you open up the app or website and search. We have location and event-based search. So you could search for American Airlines Arena or Wynwood or III Points, then the app will pull up the closest locations in the area at the best rates. It’s one touch parking”.

What To Do This Saturday

We’re coming up on the second Saturday of the month, which can only mean one thing – WYNWOOD ARTWALK! If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years (or perhaps you are new to Miami), here’s the scoop on what it’s all about:

Wynwood Art Walk is a gallery walk that takes place on the second Saturday of every month in the Wynwood Art District of Miami. It’s a free event that’s open to the public, originally created to showcase galleries in the neighborhood. Some of the must see galleries include Pan American Art Projects, Robert Fontaine Gallery and NOW contemporary. Insider tip – come hungry! The neighborhood boasts delicious restaurants but nothing beats checking out the extensive choices at the various food trucks that setup for the night. Some favs are Dim Ssäm à gogo (by the people who brought you Sakaya Kitchen), gastroPod, Ms. Cheezious, Latin Burger and Taco, and HipPOPS for dessert!
