The Mermaid Festival will find its land legs this summer in Key West! The inaugural “fin-tastic” event will celebrate mermaids while promoting ocean awareness in the Conch Republic on July 5-7.
The family-friendly gathering begins Friday, July 5th. At 24 North Hotel, we will be hosting a special “Under the Sea” display for the festivities with mermaid-inspired art at the Sunset Green Event Lawn from 6 pm to 10 pm.
Friday’s kick-off events will clear the way for the Mermaid Fest parade on Saturday, which starts at 11 am on Duval Street. The mermaid parade will scale its way down Key West’s famous passage to the Truman Waterfront Park Amphitheater.
Once the parade arrives at the Truman Waterfront, visitors, mer-people and locals will find mermaid-inspired entertainment and vendors. This event will run from noon to 6 pm.
The next day, mingle with the mermaids during the “Sunday Funday with Mermaids” at Lagerheads Beach Bar at 0 Simonton St. Starting at noon, visitors can enjoy food and drink, face painting, vendors and music all connected to the world of mermaids.
The event focused on mermaids, ocean conservation and safely swimming with a mermaid tail is fun for the whole family! Plan a Fourth of July trip to Key West, which coincides with the Conch Republic’s favorite dessert event: The Annual Key Lime Festival!
