Florida Keys & Key West appeal to visitors through a varied cultural menu. The islands’ creative community is vibrant and varied, overflowing with an energy and enthusiasm that has drawn visitors for decades.  Today this community is attracting a growing national and international market of people interested in heritage and cultural tourism and who want to experience the arts, with events ranging from an annual literary seminar to a professional symphony orchestra series.

Many elements weave together the Keys’ creative tapestry. Dance  Many of the dance performances throughout the Keys combine together amateur and professional actors and dancers, children and adults, and local and visiting talents. Notably, the “Nutcracker Key West,” the brainchild of Key West resident Joyce Stahl, a classically trained dancer who performed with New Jersey’s American Repertory Ballet for 35 years. Under the guidance of this gifted American ballet dancer, dance professionals from around the United States have joined dozens of Keys children to create a unique island-flavored version of the classic holiday ballet “The Nutcracker.”Festivals  -A variety of art and craft shows are popular throughout the Keys, such as the unique Pigeon Key Art Festival traditionally held each February on the tiny historic island beneath the Old Seven Mile Bridge southwest of Marathon Film The Florida Keys are home to South Florida’s only nonprofit, independent film multiplex. Located in Key West, the Tropic Cinema, brainchild of the Key West Film Society, has a yearly schedule of exciting new releases, contemporary, Cinematheque, independent, foreign and alternative movies in digital and 35mm format. Lovers of classics are equally well served, whether it’s a biography of Oscar Wilde, a Hemingway tribute or films in which scenes were shot right here in the Keys.

Galleries abound — featuring oils and watercolors, sculpture of all sorts, Haitian primitives, collage, pottery, handcrafted jewelry, woodcarving, stained glass and blown glass, acrylics and a variety of fine crafts.
