The Key Lime Pie Festival
Fans of sweet Key lime pie can salute the Florida Keys’ signature dessert and the tiny fruit that inspired it Thursday through Saturday, July 2-4, during the annual Key Lime Festival. Events include a Key lime pie–eating contest, a wacky talent show and samplings of Keys-distilled rum flavored with the tangy lime.
Believed to have originated in Key West in the late 1800s, Key lime pie was designated Florida’s official pie in 2006 by the state legislature. Its primary ingredients are condensed milk, egg yolks and the juice of the tiny yellow Key lime, with the creamy filling typically nestled in a graham cracker crust and topped with whipped cream or meringue.
