It’s officially summer and Key West continues to sizzle with events happening this June. School’s out and days grow longer giving you plenty of time to soak up the sun here in the sub-tropics. Dance, eat, swim and learn this month with our must-do’s list:
Swim Around The Island
Cool off June 10th and jump in for this 12.5 mile swim around Key West. You’ll be swimming in 80 degrees (cooler than being on land), through two different oceans: the Gulf of Mexico & Atlantic. Take on the feat solo, or join a relay time and become a true merperson.
Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic
Regional winners from LGBT bars in 17 North American cities are to compete to create an original Key West cocktail that reflects the island’s sunny community spirit. The hotly contested final round starts at 7 p.m. on an open-air stage in the 700 block of Duval Street, with national and regional celebrity judges.
Party With Pride
Arguably one of the biggest events in Key West, Pride 2016 is going to be nothing short of amazing. June 7 -11, it’s 5 fun filled days of street parades, rainbow bike rides, parties till the sunrise, and Mr. & Mrs. Pride pageants. Get lost in the glitter and represent One Human Family.
Live The Local Culture
Indulge in some of the freshest seafood in town on the Southernmost Food Tour. Fisherman deliver their catch daily and you truly get to taste the culture of Key West. This afternoon will leave you feeling like a local.

June 16 -18, the 3rd annual Key West Mystery Writers Fest gathers all your favorite mystery authors for a meet and greet and tell all to explain how and why some of your beloved characters were killed off. From local South Florida writers to ones internationally known, these panels will sure to have you wanting more.
