In contrast to the typical Fantasy Fest events, the two-day Goombay Festival offers fun the whole family can take part in. If you’re wondering what Goombay is, it’s a form of Bahamian music and the festival is filled to the max with rhythm of all forms: gospel, reggae, calypso, soca, hip-hop, and more. Key West’s Bahamian heritage is celebrated with Caribbean food, arts, crafts, dancing, face painting, carnival rides, and parades. To top off the fun, the Junkanoo Rush, a traditional Bahamian celebration will be performed with costumed marchers and dancers!
