Join the multi-day 200th anniversary of Key West’s first permanent settlement, commemorating the date of March 25, 1822, when U.S. Navy Lt. Matthew Perry planted the American flag on island soil, thereby solidified Key West’s special place in history. Celebrate the island’s history, architecture, food, culture, art, industries, residents and more. Planned activities include historical events, talks and shared history, a parade, heritage festival, fireworks, even a time capsule intended to be reopened at the 250th celebration in 2072.
