Calling all Conch Republic Patriots, Pirates and Partiers! It’s time to get ready for Key West’s 40th Annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration.
This occasion arose from a 17-mile traffic jam in March 1982 that was caused by a U.S. Border Patrol Blockade of the Florida Keys. Here at the Key West Historic Seaport, we’re so excited for this annual occasion that celebrates Key West’s One Human Family and everything that makes Key West such a magical place. Below, you’ll find the schedule for events taking place at the Key West Historic Seaport and Bight Marina over the first two days of the celebration, with a link to the full schedule of events from April 15-April 24.
