Florida Vacation Guide to a Taste of Key West

Foodies visiting the southern-most part of Florida on April 23 would be wise to head to the Truman Waterfront Pier in Key West where the region’s most talented chefs will be showcasing their most creative concoctions at the 17th annual Taste of Key West Festival.

The details about Taste of Key West

The Feast of Flavors is scheduled to take place on Monday, April 23 between 6 and 9pm at the Truman Waterfront Pier which is located past Truman Annex at the end of Southard Street.

On Monday the waterfront area of the pier will receive a completely new look, transforming into a vibrant, colorful open-air food and beverage market. There will be creative cuisine from more than 50 local restaurants and vintages from over 100 wineries and vineyards.

Admission to Taste of Key West is completely free! Food and wine tickets are purchased for $1 a piece.  Samples cost anywhere from three to eight tickets. You can get a commemorative wine glass for $6.

Getting there

You can park for free at Truman Waterfront. There will be free shuttle service made available between selected Key West locations and the waterfront. It’s provided by Old Town Trolley, with groups leaving every 30 minutes. The current schedule sees the last trolley leaving the waterfront at 9pm.

Proceeds raised during the Taste of Key West event will go on to benefit Key West’s AIDS Help.
