Fantasy Fest in Key West

Fantasy Fest in Key WestIt's one of the most fabulous events in the Florida Keys and is more than 20 years old. The Key West Fantasy Fest is where island residents and visitors live out their fantasies in 10 days and nights of costumed revelry!

There are dozens of themed Florida Keys events, including marches through Old Town, parties, and dazzling costume contests. The infamous Twilight Parade down Duval Street draws over 60,000 revelers to view the floats, bands, and cleverly costumed throngs on display.

The Fantasy Fest in Key West is a celebration you'll never forget, and among the most lavish, spectacular Florida Keys events. And don’t forget to enjoy countless other events in the Florida Keys year-round when you book your stay at the Heron House!
