Event content

The Key West Conch Revival Picnic is an annual event that celebrates Key West/Conch culture by preserving and promoting historic recipes. The picnic was inspired by former Society board member and late island native Dianne Zolotow.

The picnic is held at the Key West Art & Historical Society and features a variety of classic Key West & Bahamian recipes prepared by acclaimed chefs Martha Hubbard from Unity Table at Williams Hall and Dave Fuhrman from Great Events Catering.

Some of the recipes that have been presented at the picnic are inspired by the postwar Key West Woman’s Club Cookbook edited by original Conch and first Florida Keys woman mayor Wilhelmina Harvey, as well as recipes from other books located in the Key West Public Library collection.

The Conch Revival Picnic is a great way to learn about Key West history and culture while enjoying some delicious food.

Hubbard and Furman will present a feast starting with passed hors d’ oeuvres followed by a buffet and dessert. Diners can enjoy their picnic feast with live music entertainment and a cash bar.
