New Year’s Eve Shoe Drop Celebration

New Year’s Eve 2015 in Key West, Florida

Enjoy Fireworks, a Famous Shoe Drop, and Plenty of Parties to Ring in the New Year in True Key West Style!

Key West embraces a tropical climate all the year round, making it the perfect destination for holidays, especially New Year’s Eve! Experience our spectacular firework display, as well as the iconic “Shoe Drop” events that mark the countdown to NYE 2015.

Our island brings a rather unique interpretation to New York’s ball drop on NYE. In true Key West fashion, our island features the “Shoe Drop” – a 6-foot tall red high heel, carrying a drag queen that descends from the roof of the Bourbon Street Pub. Female impersonator, Sushi, headlines the annual “shoe drop” celebration, wearing a dazzling gown while perched in this super-sized high-heel.

Another “drop” occurs at the famous Sloppy Joe’s Bar on Duval Street, where their symbol of choice is a conch shell. The arrival of 2015 is celebrated with the drop of this huge manmade shell to the flat roof of Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Thousands of spectators gather on Duval Street for this annual party, that starts at 10 pm with dancing in the street. At midnight, the conch shell descends and cheers erupt from the crowd!

In true Key West fashion, New Year’s Eve also offers a wide range of parties, from the beaches to restaurants, where crowds will be out in the thousands! Enjoy sparkling fireworks too, which are launched from the end of the White Street Pier over Key West Harbor.
