Welcome to the home of the

Key West Mermaid Festival!






The Key West Mermaid Festival is founded by a Key West native mermaid. She, along with her crew and pod, invite you to step back in time to an island called Cayo Hueso (Bone Cay), where the Gulf meets the Atlantic, and the captains, seafarers, and fishermen would tell their stories of the sweet Mermaid songs.


This fin-tastic five-day event will unite the Key West locals and tourists, our neighboring Keys, visiting mermaid communities, and mermaid enthusiasts from all around the globe, on our magical little island. Family-friendly, with fun for all, join us as we raise vibration and awareness for our beautiful oceans and educate all humans to swim safely in mermaid tails. #TheTakeOverIsReel we like to say, and we look forward to getting salty with all of the captains and mermaids who work hard to make Key West and the Florida Keys a better place for all who live the island life and our visitors.

The magic of our waters is very important to us, so we've tailed up with a local non-profit to donate some of our treasures to. A portion of our festival proceeds will go to Key West's very own Reef Relief; an organization with a mission to improve and protect our coral reef system through local education, beach clean-ups, and Coral Camp.  Their efforts stretch from Key West all the way to Miami, and reach 6,000 K-12 grade students in both public and private schools!
