The Annual Key Lime Festival is a time of delicious treats, music, and celebration of Key West’s famed key lime pie. As a staple of the Keys, Key Lime Pie is a favorite local dish that combines sweet and sour for a number of different creations. This annual festival consists of four days of discovering all the different ways locals have incorporated this little green fruit into signature flavors, so visit us at The Paradise Inn in Key West Florida and experience the flavors of the keys.
When And Where
During your stay with us at The Paradise Inn in Key West Florida, the Key Lime Festival is only a hop and a skip away on Duval Street. Over the first week of July, you can find tastings, pie eating contests and more at several local businesses. Southernmost Beach Cafe hosts the pie eating contest and a brunch event a few days after the kick off to the festival. The Key West Lighthouse is the location of a Key Lime Pie Drop where you can witness participants attempt creatively drop pies from the top of the lighthouse to the ground below without causing any damage to the pie upon landing. These events and many others can be found on an event calendar on the Key Lime Festival’s official website.
