About this event

Born from a desire to invigorate a dormant October in Key West during the 1970s, Fantasy Fest® was conceived by visionaries Bill Conkle, Tony Falcone, Joe Liszka, and Frank Romano. What began as a singular parade, intended to attract tourists and jumpstart the winter season, has flourished into a 10-day extravaganza, with over 60 events that lure up to 75,000 participants annually. As you wander the vibrant streets, embrace the festival's unique blend of costumed revelry, philanthropy, and local cultural showcases. While staying at the Pier House Resort & Spa, immerse in this spectacular celebration, reflecting the imaginative spirit of the Florida Keys.
