For Specific Accommodations and Special Requests

If you have a specific accommodation request, please contact our office at least 72 hours in advance so that we have ample time to work to accommodate you and provide the best possible service.

Website / Program Accessibility

On our website we post approved ADA symbols indicating each host venue's accessibility.

The Festival provides each host venue with program notes in a minimum of 16-point type, and can provide enlarged program notes upon request to individuals with impaired vision.

Each season the comprehensive program booklet is linked to the Festival website and may be viewed by patrons on their home computers. In this way, based on personal requirements, the program booklet can be accessed to accommodate people with vision or other physical impairment.

Parking Accessibility

Limited accessible parking is available at theaters and venues

All Miami Beach and City of Miami buses are ADA accessible, and drivers are trained to assist those with disabilities. City of Miami also offers door-to-door paratransit service for passengers who are unable to use the fixed-route service.
