South Florida's biggest annual events are—like the area itself—a study in contrasts. They run the gamut: stately black-tie fund-raisers, white-knuckle races and tournaments, shows exhibiting everything from swimwear to sailboats, elegant art showcases, and uninhibited, 24-hour celebrations of music, pride, and culture. For the millions of locals and out-of-town visitors who collectively take in these events, the annual affairs represent a special expression of what the region has to offer.

To choose and rank the annual events on this list, we look at several factors, including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and an event's prominence within the communities it intends to serve.
