Events Venue/Permit Guidelines
- Key West plays host to a wide variety and a great many events that have become an important part of the community's tourist economy. A growing number of these events depend on the facilities made available by the City of Key West and the essential support services only a municipality can provide. By making these facilities and services available to organizers at reasonable cost, the City supports the successful staging of events without placing an undue financial burden on public resources or diminishing the level of services the municipality is requires to provide to residents, businesses and visitors.
The City of Key West facilitates the success of events on public property by providing professional and reliable services. For permit details, email the Special Events Administrator or call 305-809-3881.
