Hemingway Days

When: July 20 - July 23, 2022

Where: Duval St, Key West, FL 33040


Key West will see a multitude of bearded Hemingway lookalikes, and fans of Ernest Hemingway's writing and life, during Hemingway Days 2021, which runs from Tuesday to Sunday, July 20-25.

The festival's most popular event is the Hemingway Lookalike Contest at the Sloppy Joe Bar on Duval Street, which the writer frequented during his Key West residency in the 1930s.

The Hemingway Days schedule also features the Stock Island Marina Village Key West Marlin Tournament and the 5k Sunset Run/Walk and Paddleboard Race, both saluting Hemingway’s sporting lifestyle, and a lively daylong street fair on famed Duval Street.
