35th Annual Conch Republic Celebration
The Conch Republic was born on April 23rd of 1982 in response to a United States Border blockade of the Florida Keys. Since the United States Government insisted on treating the Keys like a foreign country; Key West Mayor Dennis Wardlow seceded from the Union, declared war, surrendered, and demanded foreign aid. During the intervening years the U.S. never reacted to the secession, thereby establishing sovereignty for the Conch Republic under International Law Governing “adverse possession between sovereign nations”.
We celebrate our Independence annually in a “public and notorious manner” during a ten day Conch Republic Independence Celebration held in April. This years’ 35th Anniversary Conch Republic Independence Celebration festival will be held from Friday, April 21st through Sunday, April 30th.
