For 35 years, the Caroling Competition has kicked off the holiday season in the City of Coral Gables.  It is an eagerly awaited holiday tradition.  Every year, the lions don their Santa hats and Biltmore Way becomes the stage for some of the most amazing musical talent in South Florida. It’s a special way of celebrating the holidays, continuing the tradition of the festive sound of children, caroling in front of the holiday tree. It’s HOLIDAY GLEE!

For 2021, the Caroling Competition returns, live and in person to Biltmore Way. 30 Miami-Dade and Broward, middle and senior high, public, private and parochial schools, over 1,500 young people, are competing for $20,000 in cash prizes contributed by local businesses, foundations and municipal organizations.

Since its inception, the Caroling Competition has given out nearly $500,000 to help encourage and grow the music programs in our schools. This support is made possible by grants from both Miami Dade Cultural Affairs Council and the Coral Gables Cultural Development Board and a whole host of dedicated sponsors and supporters.

The Caroling Competition takes place over five nights on the steps of 550 Biltmore Way Building. Beginning on Wednesday, December 1st, performances run through Sunday afternoon, December 5th. Different schools appear every half hour, each evening. Middle Schools perform on Wednesday and Friday. Senior High performances are on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 3 until 6 pm. Evening performances run from 7 until 10 p.m. Winners return on Tuesday, December 7th. All of the performances are free.
