Hemingway Days Caribbean Street Fair
July 22 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm
The annual Hemingway Days Caribbean Street Fair, presented by Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) – Monroe County, Inc,. will take place on Key West’s Duval Street from 10:00 AM until 10 PM Saturday, July 22nd — with the famed avenue closed to vehicular traffic and open to fun.
Street Fair sponsors and vendors for food, drink, arts and crafts are encouraged to make application for this event which transforms Duval Street into a lively open-air marketplace for pedestrians.
Each year over 15,000 locals and visitors traditionally assemble to peruse several blocks of booths displaying original arts and crafts. Local and regional vendors show and sell items from jewelry to clothing to gifts to paintings. In addition, fair attendees’ taste buds are tempted by the aromas of delicious island and ethnic dishes prepared onsite, while beverages are available to slake their thirst
The popular street fair benefits Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) – Monroe County, Inc., founded in 1984. LVA provides free, confidential, one-to-one and small group literacy tutoring for Monroe County adults and families who read and write at a fifth grade level.
