Keep Key West Weird Fund


The Keep Key West Weird Fund embraces the truly unique culture of Key West.

The fund was started by Tony Falcone, the founder of Fantasy Fest who has lived in Key West since the 1970’s, together with local investment manager Todd German.

The goal is to reward and thank individuals and organizations who publicly dress, act and do bizarre things that make the Key West culture so unique and beloved by residents and tourists alike. The founders want artists of all kinds to know that they are appreciated, know that they are important to Key West, and encourage them to stay “weird” and stay in Key West, in spite of changing times and the challenging cost of living.

No grants or awards will support activities associated with religion, politics, or violence/blood.

Thanks for your donation which will help Keep Key West Weird!
