Key West gets set for its biggest party of the year with Fantasy Fest 2016

Key West’s most flamboyant and outrageous annual party, Fantasy Fest, is taking on a political theme when it takes to the island’s streets this October 21 – 30. The week-long celebration will see thousands of masked and costumed party-goers unleashing their interpretation of America’s upcoming presidential elections with festivities themed ‘Political Voodoo & Ballot Box Barbarians.’ Parrot Key Resort is an event sponsor and guests can save up to 18% when booking in advance for the event.

With 10 packed days of masquerade balls, wild costume contests and lavish parades, Fantasy Fest is rated as one of the most anticipated events on the Key West calendar.


Kicking off in spectacular style will be the Royal Coronation Ball, which will involve public voting to elect a masked king and queen. To bring the event to a close on October 30, tens of thousands of spectators will gather in Key West’s historic downtown for the Fantasy Fest Parade with feather-bedecked groups marching through the streets alongside Caribbean bands and huge, extravagant motorised floats.

For visitors looking to explore Key West’s Caribbean roots, the family-friendly Goombay Festival in historic Bahama Village promises an upbeat party atmosphere, while LGBT travellers will enjoy the Headdress Ball.


Other theatrical highlights during Fantasy Fest include the Zombie Bike Ride, Key West Burlesque and the annual Pet Masquerade with Re-pup-licans and Demo-cats taking centre stage.

Duval Street will be transformed into a mile-long marketplace with vendors offering costumes and masks, arts and crafts, and a range of delicious food and drinks.

Parrot Key Resort is delighted to be a sponsor of this year’s Fantasy Fest. Located in Key West just minutes from the historic Old Town, the resort is hidden away in its own serene waterfront oasis to give visitors the best of both worlds during the party week.

Why we love November in the Florida Keys

There’s a month in the year that we particularly love here in the Florida Keys. Many visitors who choose this month as their favorite for a Key West vacation like to keep it a secret, but we are going to throw the spotlight on what makes this particular month so special. It’s November! Here are our top ten reasons to book a last minute getaway to Key West this November:


Peace at last

Summer has ended, the popular Halloween and Fantasy Fest parties have past, and the busy Christmas season has yet to begin – could there be a more laid-back and tranquil time to visit Key West? November is an ideal month in which to switch off, rest up and recharge away from the busy crowds.

Balmy breezes

Autumn weather steps up a gear in November when you’re back home, making way for colder, shorter, darker days. Not here in Key West. The balmy air is a beautifully warm 80 degrees at this time of year, so you can bask on Key West’s white-sand beaches and enjoy a spot of sightseeing in the historic Old Town without feeling uncomfortably hot.

Fall into Key West relaxation this October through November

It’s easy to see why so many visitors “fall” in love with the Florida Keys between September and early December. The summer crowds have disappeared and the festive season is still far enough on the horizon to enjoy a sense of calm on the islands. That’s not to say there is a shortage of events to enjoy during fall – quite the opposite. The season is perfect for dipping in and out of a variety of festivals and celebrating some of the best national events, all brought together under the warmth of a dazzling sunshine. Here are just some of the reasons to book your well-earned break in Key West during fall:

Christmas in Key West

 Calm and laid-back

September through October, before Fantasy Fest (17 – 26 October), followed by November to December are favorite times for couples and seniors to visit Key West. The island’s uncrowded beaches beckon loved ones to enjoy romantic strolls, leisurely snorkeling, reading in the shade and sprawling out in ample space. Parrot Key guests can enjoy the luxury of a complimentary shuttle service from the resort direct to Smathers Beach with towels and beach chairs included. Enjoying the island’s quieter side in fall also means being able to experience the variety of attractions without them feeling too packed. Snuggle up on a Conch Tour Train, celebrate sunset on Mallory Square, or sip a mojito at Sloppy Joe’s - Ernest Hemingway’s favorite hang-out.


Privacy in paradise

Cosy guestrooms set among lush, tropical gardens create an idyllic setting for a romantic break this fall. With a choice of ocean views or overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens, each room is spacious, kitted out with simple luxuries and just a short stroll away from one of our four refreshing swimming pools. Of course, splashing out is what a vacation calls for, so if upgrading to even more space is what you’re after then try indulging in a one of our one or two-bedroom suites with a separate living room and stunning views.


Entertaining events

Fall is well-known for its program of entertainment, from the beer-lovers’ Brewfest to the flamboyant Fantasy Fest. Here’s the low-down on the season’s best events:

Island-style food is celebrated in October during the Goombay Festival (23 – 24), which is held in Key West’s Bahama village. Alongside Keys’ cuisine at its best, the festival also showcases a beautiful range of Caribbean-inspired arts and crafts against a backdrop of nonstop music and dancing in the streets.

October 23 also heralds the start of Key West’s most talked about events of the year - Fantasy Fest. Featuring outrageous costumes and masks, this 20-day celebration of flamboyancy features parades, competitions, street fairs and live music. During the festival, Key West is at its most busy for the fall season, so if you’re looking for a more laid-back trip of serenity then it’s best to book either side of Fantasy Fest.

November is the month of national festivities with Veterans Day (11) and Thanksgiving (26) marking every opportunity for a long weekend break in the tropical sunshine. Our three-bedroom villas offer perfect space for families and groups of friends traveling together to celebrate Thanksgiving, and our poolside Cafe Blue is a favorite spot for guests to toast the occasion with a cool island cocktail.

 Special Offers

Make the most of your vacation in fall by enjoying one of our special offers such as the Key West Senior Discount or the Parrot Key Romance Package which features our spacious suites, free poolside breakfast, a complimentary bottle of wine and delicious chocolate-covered strawberries.
