Conch Republic Independence Celebration’s 30th Anniversary

One of Key West’s most famous and beloved celebrations is back — you won’t want to miss this 10 day festival featuring something for everyone! Commemorating the 1983 creation of our island nation (“We seceded where others failed!”), this event has been called Key West’s own 4th of July, Bastille Day and Cinco De Mayo celebration all rolled into one.

With events ranging from the “World’s Longest Parade” to the election of the Conch Republic Royal Family, this eclectic jamboree embodies the true spirit of our favorite tiny island — enjoy daily music festivals, bar crawls, drag races, conch-blowing contests, car shows, tall ship battles, craft shows, food festivals and even a pet stroll!

Set your calendars for April 20th – 29th. For the full schedule of events, head on over to:
