A popular fundraiser for the LGBT women of South Florida, Aqua Girl features the lively nightlife and fun-filled events for which the Gay Riviera is famous. Aqua Girl highlights include dance parties at South Beach nightclubs, a comedy night with a nationally-known comic, a pool party, a beach party, cocktail receptions, a women’s jazz brunch, a gourmet dining event, a girls’ rock concert, a women’s art exhibit and more.
The weekend features a variety of events, including Aqua Rock, Sip and Savor Wine and Cheese Reception and various pool parties. The Aqualicious Pool Party is among one of the many events held during Aqua Girl. Party with thousands of hot women as you enjoy cool poolside cocktails and dance to the beat of a lineup of the hottest hop-hop, house and Top 40 music.
Aqua Girl traces its beginnings to 1999. That year, Alison Burgos and NYC’s legendary women’s producer, Shescape, gathered a committee of like-minded women from around South Florida to produce an exciting one-night event to benefit breast cancer. The event, Sweet Charity, was an extraordinary dance event bringing together over 800 women and raising over $15,000 for two local breast cancer organizations, Cancer Link and Gilda’s Club.
In 2000, Sweet Charity grew into an entire weekend of events and Aqua Girl was born. The goal was to create a dynamic national fundraising weekend celebrating women and the issues that affect them. Women descended on Miami from all over the world and the first year of this spectacular weekend of events was a huge success.
Aqua Girl continues to attract women from all corners of the country, the Americas and around the globe. The week continues to grow with an ever-expanding variety of events that enhance its appeal and have created what is now the hottest women’s festival in the country.
