KEY WEST EVENTS
Annual Second Line Procession
FOR JIMMY BUFFETT
When one of our Key West icons, Jimmy Buffett, passed away, we knew we had to honor him the Key West way. The answer? A Second Line Procession filled with his three favorite things: Rum, Music, and Stories. Now we're making this celebration of life one of the biggest annual Key West events.
It's 5 O'Clock in
Join us in 2024 for one of the newest Key West Events: a Second Line Procession celebrating the music and spirit of Jimmy Buffett. We'll make three stops along Duval Street while singing and celebrating and end the parade at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater, honoring the namesake who inspired it all.
Can You Believe the Turnout in 2023?!
Within 16 hours we successfully organized a Second Line Procession on Duval Street to celebrate Jimmy Buffet, the man who brought paradise to our playlists. Your incredible support was overwhelming, with an estimated 9,000 attendees and thousands more watching the event live on Facebook!
