Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration Events

In celebration of Tennessee Williams, the Pulitzer-prize winning literary icon that moved to Key West in 1949 and remained a resident for 34 years, Key West Art & Historical Society hosts an annual ‘Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration,’ a month-long series of arts and cultural events that takes place each March at multiple Key West venues.

This yearly festival of events often includes a museum fundraiser, plein air painting, poetry and short story writing contests, lectures, museum tours, film showings, live theater events and a birthday party complete with cake and bubbly to honor the life and accomplishments of Williams, whose rise to stardom began with The Glass Menagerie and continued with A Streetcar Named DesireCat on a Hot Tin Roof and other dramatic masterpieces.
