Key West Fall Festivals You Don’t Want To Miss!
Two of our favorite Key West festivals just happen to be celebrating anniversaries this year. Happy 10th to Key West Brewfest and happy 40th to our friends at Fantasy Fest! Both festivals bring a new spirit and vibe to holiday happenings in the Florida Keys this fall. On tap, Labor Day Weekend is the 10th Annual Key West Brewfest and at the end of October, we celebrate 10 days of creative costuming, parades, and themed parties during the 40th Annual Fantasy Fest.

"IN TUNE BUT OFF KEY: CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF FANTASY
Happy 40th anniversary of Fantasy Fest! We can’t wait for this year’s festivities! We invite everyone to get in the Fantasy Fest spirit by getting creative with your costumes by incorporating the theme, In Tune But Off Key. Whether you’re an alto, a baritone, a soprano, or even tone deaf, you can march to the beat of your own drum in your most creative costumes. Become your rock star idol, create a dance routine with your favorite jazzercise group, or transport yourself back to the best songs of your childhood. The ideas are endless, so find the right pitch, sing along with the melody, and do the twist down to Key West this October!
Fantasy Fest is 10 days of fun-filled with costuming, parades, libations, and excitement!
Each year the festival grows and with it comes some of our favorites along with new daily diversions and activities.
This year, The Marker Resort is excited to participate in one of the new daily diversions called BART. BART is a BAR & ART self-guided stroll along the docks at the Historic Seaport between Conch Republic Seafood Company and Dante's with stops at Half Shell Raw Bar, Turtle Kraals, Waterfront Brewery, Schooner Wharf Bar and our Key West Waterfront Resort, The Marker. Check in at participating bars with #BARTKW (don’t forget to tag us #lovethemarker) and a photo of the figures and sculptures and you will have a chance to win vintage Fantasy Fest t-shirts and swag!
