Key West is the place to be for the most festive, spectacular celebration to welcome the New Year!
Key West brings its own interpretation of the ball drop –starting with the famous drag queen Sushi in the red high heel descending from the roof of the Bourbon Street Pub on Duval St.
Walk a few blocks to Ernest Hemingway’s old haunt Sloppy Joe’s to see the 27th Annual Dropping of the Conch Shell. This celebration was first created by local artist Tobias McGregor as a way for all of Duval Street to celebrate in unison. Gather for live entertainment, dancing, bead tossing, and more at this iconic Key West New Year’s Eve party.
Head up to the Historic Seaport to see the Lowering of the Pirate Wench at Schooner Wharf. Visit the Tall Ship America 2.0, listen to live music and entertainment, and ring in the new year with the blast of a cannon.
