It's no secret that deciding which fairs to attend during Art Basel Miami Beach week is the biggest decision after deciding which hotel to select. Attending Art Basel Miami Beach is a no brainer--it is the main event and the single fair art collectors, fans and industry professionals all pay attention to. Art Basel Miami Beach is the largest of the art fair, sitting at 500,000 square feet of exhibition space, not counting its off-site projects.

With no fewer than 17 satellite fairs, we've put together the ultimate guide for Art Basel Miami Beach Satellite Fairs, all taking place in Miami or Miami Beach. For a quick list (or to see upcoming art fairs in 2016), visit our Art Fair Directory. Otherwise, scroll on to get your dance card for the art fairs squared away.
