Celebrate Boating with Fun Key West Parties and Exciting Races

November 8th – 15th, 2020

The Key West Offshore Racing World Championships isn’t just for racers. It’s also a place for fans to get up close with the action and see these amazing power boats first hand. This great event is full of fun parties and parades. At the annual Duval Street Party, boats are on display for the public to see. One section of the course runs right through Key West Harbor. The smooth water allows racers to reach speeds above 140 mph. And spectators with private boats can enjoy the races from out on the water.
