Celebrate Conch Republic Independence at the Historic Seaport!

Calling all Conch Republic Patriots, Pirates and Partiers! It’s time to get ready for Key West’s 40th Annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration.

This occasion arose from a 17-mile traffic jam in March 1982 that was caused by a U.S. Border Patrol Blockade of the Florida Keys. Here at the Key West Historic Seaport, we’re so excited for this annual occasion that celebrates Key West’s One Human Family and everything that makes Key West such a magical place.
