Key West Fantasy Fest 2020 - Roaring 2020s and Future Fictions

The Key West Fantasy Fest theme is Roaring 2020s and Future Fictions. 

The schedule for Key West Fantasy Fest 2020 is yet to be determined. Here's last year's information.

The 2019 Fantasy Fest theme was In Tune But off Key. With this fun theme, there were so many ways for you to share your creativity. Floats in the parade and costumes reflected past eras, present realities, and future possibilities. The 2019 Key West Fantasy Fest is going to be bigger and better than ever.

Fantasy Fest King and Queen 

Every year, as part of a fund-raising campaign to support AIDs Help, two local Key West residents are selected as the King and Queen of Fantasy Fest. This is a fun 8-week campaign that includes a singing competition, a rowdy Sunday BINGO, and a Saturday Red Shirt Run.

Bud Light Fantasy Fest Parade

The Bud Light Fantasy Fest Parade is a major highlight of this exciting event. Winding down Duval street, this giant parade is full of spectacularly decorated floats and tons of costumed entertainers. It’s not surprising to see tens of thousands of people lining Duval street to witness this amazing event. The 2019 Fantasy Fest Parade begins on Saturday, October 26th, at 7pm.
