About Dania After Dark

Dania After Dark (DAD), is a monthly street festival established in 2018 and presented by the Dania Beach CRA to create a sense of place and community space for Dania Beach residents, businesses and visitors to enjoy family-friendly entertainment in the heart of downtown Dania Beach. DAD is held in the current City Hall compound. This CRA event is setting the stage for a proposed arts and entertainment area in the heart of downtown Dania Beach which should foster business development and the enhancement of existing businesses in the area. DAD is held on the second Saturday of each month showcasing all forms of art and craft, music, food and culture. From 2018 to 2020 seventeen installments were held. Some favorite features of the event are the kids’ corner which usually features do-it-yourself art projects and games. For art aficionados a live art piece is produced on site by a South Florida artist at each installment. Nonstop music throughout the event from 5:00 pm to 10:00pm is a main attraction as patrons relax on the greens and enjoy Dania Beach’s hospitality.
