Join locals and visitors alike as the island celebrates its secession from the United States – we have always dared to be different! This 10-day long birthday bash is full of wacky, wonderful events including the notorious Drag (Queen) Races, conch shell blowing contests, the Schooner Wharf Conch “Car” Show, and of course the infamous bloody battle in Key West harbor where Conch Republic vessels toss stale Cuban bread at Coast Guard vessels in a mock secession. Also enjoy scores of live music performances, fabulous food fairs, and other enjoyable pet & family friendly activities throughout the entire gala. This event showcases the independent & eccentric spirit that characterizes the Florida Keys!
