KeyFest is a combination of different attractions and this year we have expanded on this by bringing in a Carnival from Butler Amusements, Hosting a Vehicle Show, providing Live Music along with other Stage Acts, a Trout Fishing Pond, and many other attractions. Together with the returning Farm Animal exhibit and Live Entertainment we will also have Food and Merchandise Venders and a Beer and Wine Garden.
We are constantly looking to improve and grow KeyFest in order to bring a weekend of enjoyment to the Key Peninsula. The Carnival will continue to grow as we are going to have more Rides and Games. Again, we have contracted with Butler Amusements to provide more rides, games and carnival food. Butler Amusements believes in offering its customers the newest and latest in family entertainment. Everything you would expect from a trip to a carnival you’ll find at a Butler Amusements carnival and is considered "The Cleanest Show in the West"!
