The Weirdest Events at Fantasy Fest

The Weirdest Events at Fantasy Fest

September 18th, 2019 | Key West Events & Festivals

Fantasy Fest is known as a judgment-free zone where all things weird are cause for celebration. Along with such freedoms come plenty of peculiar events for attendees. Here we’ve rounded up this year’s weirdest events of Fantasy Fest Time Travel Unravels, which runs Oct. 18-27.

Cocktails for Animal Tails - Tuesday, Oct. 22

A good cause that is bizarre enough only for Fantasy Fest. Each bar at Rick’s Complex (202 Duval St.) will be transformed into different animal kingdoms! Guests are urged to get in touch with their wild side and dress up accordingly. All-you-can-drink Animal Party to benefit FL Keys SPCA. Entry is $35.

11th Annual TuTu Tuesday - Tuesday, Oct. 22

Tuesday has never been better. Grab a tutu and celebrate all things tutu at the General Horeseplay Complex (423 Caroline St.). Wristband entry is $20 and the party will take place across four bars.

The White Rabbit's Wonderland - Wednesday, Oct. 23 - Saturday, Oct. 25

See a very Fantasy Fest kind of spin on a classic. This burlesque parody features a "bodacious bevy of burlesque beauties," including Tatah DuJour, Aurora Natix, and more. Get your tickets online with the Key West Theater.

Air Sex Championships - Wednesday, Oct. 23

This renowned comedy performance makes it way to Fantasy Fest for the first time in its 11th-year run. Described as a "respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous, and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression." Held at First Flight Restaurant & Brewery at 301 Whitehead St. Buy tickets in advance.


The Fat Lady Sings Tea Dance - Sunday, Oct. 27 

The last official event of FF. At La Te Da from 4-8 p.m. Witness the festival's closing signaled by the fat lady singing. $5 for the last hurrah.
