Festival Guide

We started the festival two years ago to celebrate the official ending of a particularly difficult hurricane season down here — just months after Irma tore through the Lower Keys.

Then, the main goal was — and still is now — to get the community together at a time of year when things really start to change on the island. Beyond surviving the sweltering summer heat, storm season and the tumbleweeds of the slow fall months, we want to acknowledge and appreciate the arrival of the first cold fronts and the opening of high season.

In addition to celebrating, the festival also serves as a hurricane relief fundraiser with donation opportunities at events throughout the weekend.This year’s funds will be directed to Key West Cares who has been at the forefront of the Bahamas relief effort since Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands in September.
