Fantasy Fest is 10-day party that first took place back in 1979! It was started by a group of Key West locals who wanted to attract fall visitors. It worked like a charm- and it has since exploded into an exhilarating annual extravaganza! People from around the world flock to Key West for Fantasy Fest. It is unlike anything you've ever experienced! 

For 10 days, the grown-ups get to play! Everyone dons costumes and comes together for parades, libations, and fun! You can enjoy art displays, body painting, karaoke, rock shows, dance parties, pool parties, happy hours- and that's just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many parties- the fun is nonstop!
