Key West Sunset Celebration

Do you know that there is a party in Key West that occurs 365 times a year? Key West is known for its unique party scene. We love to celebrate just about anything. We celebrate the full moon. We celebrate song writers. We even celebrate fantasy. While those events come and go each year. There is one celebration that happens just about everyday. This celebration is known as the Sunset Celebration.

About an hour prior to the sunset everyday you will see a majority of the island’s visitors as well as locals venture to Mallory Square. It’s almost a shift you can feel as the island tilts a little to the west to accommodate the increase in visitors. If you haven’t caught a sunset at Mallory Square make sure you get there early to grab a front row seat for the excitement.

During the sunset celebration from Mallory Square you will see a variety of street performers and musicians, showcasing Key West’s local talent. You will also see an array of boats sailing in the harbors they celebrate the southernmost sunset in the United States.
