Miami Beach - 11th Street to 14th Street

“The Greatest Show Above the Earth” will showcase the men, women, technology and equipment from all five branches of the United States Military as well as our Police, Firefighters and their First Responder agencies over two days on the beautiful shores of Miami Beach.

This two-day spectacular event will showcase the most impressive military fighter jets, bombers, and equipment from all branches of the United States Military, as well as our Police, Firefighters, and their First Responder agencies.


The National Salute to America’s Heroes℠ presented by Hyundai is designed to pay tribute, honor and encourage our military and first responder heroes. The main component of this initiative is our world-class Hyundai Air & Sea Show®. This Salute will showcase our country’s state of the art military technology, dynamic sea events, the finest musical talent and more! All patriotic Americans can support our National Heroes through the Salute 365 Network every day of the year.

There is no better time than Memorial Day weekend to pay tribute to our Military, First Responders, and those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our freedom.

Picture a patriotically infused music concert, wrapped in a world-class Hyundai Air & Sea Show®, climaxing with spectacular star spangled fireworks, all shared with a national television audience.

“On behalf of everyone at Hyundai, I am deeply honored to stand here by you commemorating the sacrifices of the men and women who have served this nation.”
