    Soul Beach Festival

    Does anyone know dates for when the Soul Beach Festival will be in 2016? Thinking About a trip to Aruba in late May 2016 but would like to avoid all the noise associated with the event.

    I am not positove but I believe it's usually held on Memorial Day weekend here in the US. In 2016, it falls on May 30th.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Thanks, Tracey, that's what I'm afraid of. We wanted to go back at that time next year but may need a new plan. We were there once (accidently) for the festival......way too noisy for our taste. i checked their site to confirm dates for 2016 but right now the site is focussed (understandably) on 2015.

    We typically head to Aruba the week before Memorial Day (flying home the Saturday before Memorial Day). For the past few years we noticed the festival activities have started up at Moomba the Thursday we are there. We've learn to plan around it: our beach days earlier in the week and pool days towards the end.


    Get me back to Aruba!

    I just read a little more about it. I didn't realize it was spread around the island at different venues, includi ng Moomba, the Renaissance area, and even an event at Baby Beach. For anyone that will be on the island May 20-25th 2015, you may want to check the events website and plan your trip and excursions accordingly. We aren't into crowds so I for one would be disappointed if our Baby Beach day coincided with a dj and party. The website is soulbeach.net
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We would be staying at the Surf Club and wouldn't want to be within five miles of Moomba during this event.

    I had forgotten about Soul Beach festival. We will be there that whole week. It can be interesting though. We flew from MIA to AUA sitting behind Jamie Foxx one year. He was quite nice and we got photos and autographs from him. Years ago we flew down on a plane with K C and the Sunshine Band. They were going down there for an HBO special with Sinbad called one hot summer I believe. The island was packed for 5 days.

    Try to plan to go the week after it, that's what we are doing this year! The festival always ends on Monday (memorial day).
