Mallory Square Key West: Sunset Celebrations & Live Entertainment

For the quintessential Key West experience, visit Mallory Square in the historic Old Town, adjacent to the cruise ship port. This outdoor plaza overlooking the Gulf of Mexico attracts tourists, locals, and people from near and far for the Sunset Celebration. Catch street performers, musicians, sword swallowers, dancers, and all types of colorful entertainers before witnessing one of the world's most magical, picture-perfect sunsets at this nightly event.
The festivities begin about two hours before the sun goes down, which gives you plenty of time to take in the amusement of the performers, crafts on display, food carts, and enjoy the bars and restaurants surrounding the square. Bring your camera because you could be lucky enough to see the famous Green Flash which occurs when the sun sinks below the horizon.
