Key West sunset

Fantasy Fest is a series of parties and events that brings Key West in the famous Florida Keys to life for a couple of weeks in late October and early November each year.

The event dates back to 1979 and has expanded over the years into the current cavalcade of raucous and debauched parties including fancy dress, balls and drag queen competitions and culminating in a parade of floats across the narrow island.
Designating themselves the Conch Republic, the natives of Key West nominate themselves a Conch King and Queen to lead the celebrations and the events are attended by huge crowds of visitors to the area, bringing in total crowds estimated at over 100,000, which is actually larger than the normal population!
