Underwater and outdoor enthusiasts, ecotravelers and families are encouraged to celebrate the marine environment at Mote’s Ocean Fest: A Community Celebration. Proceeds and donations from the festival support Mote Marine Laboratory’s coral reef restoration and research programs. Join us for Ocean Fest in Key West, Florida, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. April 20, 2024, in Truman Waterfront Park.

Mote’s Ocean Fest invites people of all ages to enjoy a fun day of crafts, games, music, food, local brews (for ages 21+) and shopping as we showcase our treasured marine environment while raising money for coral reef research, restoration and conservation. Attendees can explore conservation and environmental exhibits, meet Mote scientists along with other conservation and environmental organizations from around Florida, and learn about the work they are doing and how you can help.
