Please join us as we continue our six-month long #HIALEAHNOW Series at the Beats and BBQ Bash in the Leah Presented by Jameson!

Join the cypher or watch from the sidelines, you are sure to enjoy witnessing the Catalyst Crew and their award-winning breakdancing moves. The BBQ Bash will celebrate the life of one of this community’s most giving and impactful individuals, Catalyst Hip-Hops’s Joel Stigale, the passionate founder who worked with mentoring at-risk youth and inspired many of Hialeah’s most impressionable minds through hip-hop and positivity.

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade County’s most prolific thrift stores.
These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it's location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.
