"Before Andrew” and “After Andrew” is how many Homestead, Florida residents divide defining moments in their lives – showing the lasting impact Hurricane Andrew had in shaping this community.  On Saturday, August 27, 2022 the City of Homestead will commemorate the historic 30th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew from 12pm-5pm at the Homestead Cybrarium located at 80 West Mowry Drive, Homestead, FL 33030. The event will feature many exciting elements like the unveiling of the Hurricane Andrew Virtual Reality Experience as well as kids’ learning and craft activities. Attendees will enjoy Hurricane related workshops  by the National Weather Service and Florida International University as well as a diverse panel discussion that will feature firsthand accounts from community members who lived through this devastating tragedy.

Thirty years after Hurricane Andrew made landfall in our community the City of Homestead is stronger than ever. The new Hurricane Andrew Virtual Reality experience will take guests through a journey of the devastation, the aftermath, and how the community not only rebuilt but is thriving. The experience is an extension of the Homestead History experience, which is an immersive virtual reality look at the history of the City of Homestead that explores the people, places, and events that have shaped our community. The new Hurricane Andrew exhibit will premiere at the event will be available for viewing at the Cybrarium as part of the permanent collection.

The event is a community effort organized by the City of Homestead in partnership with the Cybrarium, Homestead Town Hall Museum, National Weather Service and Florida International University. For more information visit www.cityofhomestead.com/hurricaneandrew
