 Whether composing novels in his Whitehead Street writing studio or fishing for big game in local waters, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway left a powerful legacy in Key West. His zest for life, literary accomplishments and enduring affection for the island he called home throughout the 1930s are to be commemorated July 17-July 22.

Something for everyone in the schedule of events: museum exhibit, marlin tournament, Hemingway Look-Alike contest, arm wrestling contest, street fair, Running of the Bulls, 5K Sunset Run/Walk and Paddleboard Race.
