Good Morning America - The World's Largest Key Lime Pie!

The Key Lime Festival 2013, Key West Florida, U.S.A

Key LImes flavor our soups, pies and martinis - our soaps and our salts.  More importantly, they flavor our lives, which are as unique to the Florida Keys as the tart and juicy fruit. The Key Lime Pie Festival is a celebration of both our citrus and eccentrics.  Come on down for a real taste of what the Keys are about!

Are You Crazy  for Key Limes?

The little lime called citrus aurantifolia embarked on quite a journey before becoming a Key Lime. Like many residents, she arrived from somewhere else, and knew immediately this was a place she could call home. She planted herself, dug in roots, branched out and began a fruitful career. Today she is known across the globe, but maintains her roots where she started, right here in the Florida Keys.

Schedule of Events : July 4th-6th 2013

Locals and tourists alike celebrate Key Limes every day, but in the Florida Keys we like to pay our respects and celebrate the things that make our islands so unique in a big way every now and then. Our celebrations are big, odd, fun and unforgettable. They have a lot of style served with a delicious side of pizzazz.
