58th Annual Key west Conch Shell Blowing Contest

TAGS: Charity History Festival Kids Music Outdoor Family Friendly Special Event Festival
Saturday 3/7

58th Anniversary! The annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest, celebrates the historic importance of the conch in the Keys. Free and open to children and adults of all ages, the Contest will be held Saturday, March 7, 2020, 12:00 noon, at the Oldest House, 322 Duval Street. The conch itself, a sturdy sea mollusk, is deeply entwined in the Key West's heritage and tradition. As well as savoring conch meat in fritters and chowder, native-born islanders proudly call themselves Conchs (pronounced "Konk"). Their island home is known as the Conch Republic. Entrants are judged on the quality, duration and loudness, and novelty of the sound they produce. Mercifully, for most contestants, musical ability is not a requirement. The winners take home trophies; ribbons are awarded to those who participate.
