Spring is right around the corner in the US, but it’s always summer temps here in sunny Key West, Florida! The flowers are always in bloom, the rooster’s crowing, and the bartenders’ pouring, so pack your bathing suit, flip flops, and Hawaiian shirt and get down here to enjoy the March events we’re cooking up for you. Here’s the top 6…

6. Celebrate Tennessee Williams’ Birthday

Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration this March 2017

Tennessee Williams’ Birthday is celebrated with poetry, film showings, theater productions, contests, prizes, and more! Photo //

Key West loves Tennessee Williams as much as he once loved our little 4 by 2 mile island! We celebrate his birthday every year with locally acted productions of his most famous plays and showings of his works that made it to the big screen. It doesn’t end there. He’s honored with short story writing and painting contests complete with prizes and an awards ceremony…and cake, because what birthday is complete without cake?!? Visit their website to sign up to compete or to purchase tickets to the shows and events.

5.  Delight in delicious “Dock to Dish” cuisine.


The Docks is our new favorite seafood spot that’s tucked away and off the beaten path. Located just one island north of Key West, in Stock Island, this restaurant & raw bar is the epitome of island dining. As indicated by the name, it’s situated right on the fishing docks so not only are you experiencing a taste of “Old Key West” but you’re guaranteed to be served the freshest seafood available. With award winning food and drinks, this spot is a must see while visiting Key West. The modern industrial interior is an ode to the working waterfront that surrounds and sustains the restaurant. Open 7 days a week, with happy hour 3-5 Monday through Thursday. Visit their website here to check out all they have to offer!!

4.  Put your dancing’ shoes on!

Little Feat and friends are coming to play a VIP show at the intimate Key West Theater and then rock the house down at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater. Little Feat is thrilled to welcome Melvin Seals & JGB and Donna the Buffalo to their first Feat Camp. How sweet it is to experience the music of the Jerry Garcia Band and Little Feat all in one day. They are also overjoyed to bring guitar extraordinaire Tommy Emmanuel and Vince Herman back to Feat Camp. This time Vince is bringing Leftover Salmon with him which should be a very tasty dish. The Midnight Ramble Horns will also be joining in the fun. There should be some very memorable collaborations! Tickets sold here!

1. Experience Key West Food Tours’ Historic Seaport Tour

It’s never a bad time to jump on the Historic Seaport Tour, but March happens to be a particularly great time to do so. The sun is out, the food is hot, and the drinks are on ice. Guests get taken “behind the scenes” of Duval and led through side streets which feature some of THE BEST (but not always most widely known) eateries Key West, FL has to offer! As a bonus, your guide stops throughout the tour to highlight architectural, historical, and cultural fun facts. You leave full and happen to learn something while getting there…money well spent.
