Celebrate Key West's History of Independence
Aspiring Conch Republic citizens can celebrate the offbeat “nation’s” birthday April 15-24 with activities ranging from a drag race for female impersonators to an exuberant sea skirmish featuring tall ships. Showcasing the republic’s eccentric spirit, the 40th annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration commemorates the Florida Keys’ symbolic secession from the United States following the establishment of a 1982 U.S. Border Patrol blockade that virtually stopped traffic on the only road connecting the Keys and mainland Florida.
