Get Your Shamrock on at The Key West Historic Seaport!

Come Get Your Shamrock on at The Key West Historic Seaport!

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and at the Key West Historic Seaport, we believe there’s always a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, and that every day brings the possibility of adventure and good fortune!

On that note, from sailing adventures, fishing charters, delicious restaurants, cute local shops, and more, here are some great events and promotions taking place for St. Patrick’s Day at the Key West at the Historic Seaport.

44th Annual St. Paddy’s Day Bar Stroll

Event founder and organizer Rick Dostal started the St. Patrick’s Day Bar None Suds Run in 1979 with the help of Curly McGinn. Curly owned the Sandcastle Bar (now Michael’s restaurant on Margaret St.). At his request, the run ended at his bar and every year that it did, Curly, Rick, and the Strollers drank the place dry!

Finally, last but not least (we personally think it’s the best),  Schooner Wharf Bar  is a wonderful place to unwind at the end of all that strollin’!


ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY WITH FURY!

If you’re looking for something in the water for your St. Patrick’s Day, Fury Water Adventures Key West is putting a festive spin on all of their trips on March 17th! With select trips featuring green beer and other special holiday treats, you’ll be sure to get your shamrock on with a Fury Watersports adventure on St. Patrick’s Day.
