Update – August 25, 2020: In light of the circumstances and out of concern for the safety of our members, volunteers, and staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel REEF Fest 2020.

We know this is disappointing news, especially for those who had hoped to travel to Key Largo this October. We greatly appreciate your interest in REEF Fest and are eagerly awaiting the day when we can safely come together as a community to celebrate marine conservation. In the meantime, please mark your calendar to join us for REEF Fest 2021, scheduled for October 14-17. If you have any questions, please contact events@REEF.org.

For the Love of the Sea Sunset Celebration

Time: 4:30 - 8:30 pm

Location: 103674 Overseas Hwy. Key Largo, FL 33037, an outdoor waterfront venue located next to Quiescence Diving Services on Key Largo's Blackwater Sound

In light of the economic impacts of COVID-19, we’ve adjusted the traditional REEF Fest banquet, For the Love of the Sea, to be an evening social and networking event and have also reduced the ticket price for entry. We hope this shift makes the gathering more accessible for our community and extended REEF members and partners as we all join together to celebrate marine conservation. Join us to enjoy live music while connecting with friends over drinks, appetizers, and a beautiful sunset overlooking the waters of Florida Bay. Tickets are avilable for $35 per person and include plenty of appetizers and finger foods, plus an open bar with local craft beer, wine, liquor, and a selection of non-alcoholic beverages. Please note: a seated dinner is not included in this year's event.

Tickets are required and are $35 per person.

Tickets will be available later this fall. More information coming soon.

If any tickets remain at REEF Fest, they will be available for purchase during the weekend. If purchasing more than one ticket, please provide your guest(s) names in the comment box at checkout. No pets please.
