Key West’s Goombay Festival to Blend Music, Food and Island Spirit

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — High-energy family fun, entertainment and multicultural taste treats await revelers Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19-20, during the annual Goombay street festival.

The lively festival runs from noon to midnight both days, with the action centered on Petronia Street in the heart of Key West’s historic Bahama Village neighborhood. Attractions include live music, food and a spirited celebration of the cultural connection between Key West and the Bahamas.

Goombay weekend marks the beginning of Fantasy Fest, Key West’s 10-day masking and costuming gala. The 2018 festival is themed “Oh … The Games We Play!” and is scheduled Friday, Oct. 19, through Sunday, Oct. 28. 

Each year Goombay attracts thousands of people ranging from national and international visitors to Florida Keys residents who have made attending the event a local tradition. 

Against the vibrant backdrop of Bahama Village, they view and purchase island arts and crafts, savor the flavors of vendors’ delicacies and spend two rocking evenings dancing in the streets.
