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. Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration

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.  Latin Brass at the Lighthouse

Maybe you’ve passed by this Key West monolith on our tour, or made your way up the 188 steps to the top for its stunning view, but have you yet seen a 5 piece brass band there for free? I don’t think so! Round up the gang Sunday, March 14th at 4pm and enjoy the trombones and trumpets on the grass at this free family-friendly event. Reservations are required! See details here. 

4. House & Garden Tours

March 12 & 13th tours are offered from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. both days. . Tickets are $40 and transportation between homes is not included. Proceeds help benefit the Old Island Restoration Foundation.

 

3. Experience Sinatra: The Musical

You’ll never get a chance to see Frank Sinatra or Frank Sinatra Jr. perform in concert, but they say that Tony Sands is the next best thing! This show is a must-see for any Sinatra fan. Tony Sands has incorporated stunning graphics of Sinatra’s life from 17 to 70 that entice you the moment the stage lights dim and the music begins. The show starts with Sinatra’s early days with Tommy Dorsey to Sinatra’s comeback. Sands performs hits, ‘That’s Life,’ ‘Come Fly With Me,’ ‘Luck Be A Lady,’ ‘My Way,’ ‘New York,’ and many more. Don’t miss this one of a kind musical tribute to Frank Sinatra.

2. Sunset Series at the Amp

1. 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.
