Fantasy Fest

Every October, the Fantasy Fest brings thousands of adults to Key West for the wildest extravaganza around. Dating back to 1979, a few local business owners decided to create an event that would bring visitors to the island in a typically quiet season and it has grown every year since. Fun-loving revelers from around the globe bring their creativity and imaginations as they descend upon Key West each year in October for 10 days filled with costuming, parades, libations, and excitement! Keep in mind that with the exception of the Goombay Festival (see below), a lot of these activities aren’t for kids.
