It’s Holiday Cheer for Your Ears.
And a Great Way to Support the Music Programs in Schools.

The Caroling Competition has become an eagerly awaited holiday tradition in the City of Coral Gables. It began in 1987 when the 550 Building first presented the City with it’s spectacular poinsettia tree LEARN MORE >



Schools Competing

The Caroling Competition takes place over five nights on the steps of 550 Biltmore Way.
A total of six South Florida middle and high school choirs perform each evening.



Donated to Help Support Music Programs in Our Schools.

The Caroling Competition is about supporting the arts. Virtually every dollar goes directly to local school music programs. Over the years, Merrick Festival has donated more than $500,000 to support the music programs in the schools.  .

You can be a part of the successes by getting involved at one of many levels of sponsorship.


Judges Judging!

The Caroling Competition is fortunate to have some of the best musical people in our community judging this event. They have a wide variety of skills and talents and many years of experience.
