Florida Keys Seafood Festival
You can bicycle to this event at Bayview Park. This is a family-friendly event that starts at 11:00 and includes local fresh Keys seafood, drinks, marine-related crafts, kids activities, and live music. Free admission makes it a must-do.
January 18 – 22
Nearly 300 racing yachts compete for class championships in this international sailboat regatta. It’s really exciting to watch aboard a boat. There are many charters that will be going out.
This movable feast is a delicious gourmet experience. Our Key West chefs use indigenous ingredients to create sparkling dishes that you will definitely enjoy. The event starts with the beachfront Kick-off your-Flip-Flops-Barefoot-Beach Party. Here you can enjoy island seafood, margaritas and jazz. It’s a fun time.
Another favorite is ‘Duval Uncorked’ on Saturday night, Jan. 30th. This is a mile-long wine tasting and food sampling party accompanied by the Caribbean Queen Junkanoos.

February 27- 28
The 45th annual juried fine art show is set on lower Whitehead Street in historic Old Town.
