Islamorada Founders Park is hosting an Independence Day celebration from 6 to 10 p.m. with plenty of free entertainment, kids’ activities, food and drinks, plus an impressive fireworks display. Crowds also gather at the Islamorada Sandbar, but they come by boat, so the area is packed on the Fourth of July

Celebrations in Key West (July 4, 2024)

Key West is famous for its fireworks displays launched from the Edward P. Knight Pier. It is best seen from Smathers Beach, Higgs Beach, and other waterfront locations. The best way to make the most of the beautiful fireworks reflecting off the water is to book a fireworks cruise in the Key West area. You can rent a simple boat or a luxury ship carrying champagne, gourmet food and music. Remember, fireworks flights sell out quickly.

The Key West Rotary Club holds a patriotic celebration at Ed Knight Pier with music, food and spectacular fireworks. Visitors can enjoy dancing on the beach, and children’s activities such as slides, inflatables and face painting. Delicious food and drinks are always available, so no one stays hungry. Key West is also hosting a 5K race on the Fourth of July, starting at the Edward B. Knight Pier at 7:30 a.m. Another attraction is the Key West Mermaid Festival, which celebrates all things mermaid. Proceeds from the three-day festival go to Reef Relief, a Key West nonprofit.
