Meeting of the Minds 2021 - 31st Annual | Key West Events

Celebrate the Music of Jimmy Buffett

The Meeting of Minds, also called Parrot Heads Week, is a classic Key West event that celebrates the music of Jimmy Buffett, our beloved island singer and songwriter who created the idea of Margaritaville. Every fall, Parrot Heads from all over the world come to Key West for a week of dancing, fun-loving parties, and island pirate celebrations.

Support Charities with Parrot Head Music

Taking place November 3rd through November 7th, the 2020 Meeting of the Minds is a beachfront festival to celebrate Parrot Heads in Paradise - a nonprofit inspired by Jimmy Buffet and his music. Over the years, the festival has raised over 53 million dollars towards various charities.

The festival takes place in beautiful Key West near all sorts of cool attractions like the Hemingway House and the Southernmost Point of the Continental U.S. With all the excitement going on, you’ll need the perfect place to relax and unwind after all the fun - book a Key West vacation rental close to all the excitement!
