Key West may be a small island, but when it comes to Key Lime Pie, we go big. How big you ask? World record big! We want you to be a part of the Lime flavored magic.

Four ambitious islanders are attempting to make the biggest Key Lime Pie in the world. The pie is rumored too big to be contained by 4 walls, so the City of Key West has reserved an entire block of Greene Street in front of Old City hall exclusively for the record pie and those who want to get a taste of the world record action.

The Key Lime Piestravaganza! is FREE to attend. Slices of the World Record Key Lime Pie are available to all with a suggested donation of just $2.00 to benefit The Key West Firehouse Museum. Balloons, banners and an appearance by the infamous Key Lime Kirby will only add to the excitement.

Attempting the record are Key Lime Pie Cookbook author, David L. Sloan, Key Lime Festival Co-Founder Marky Pierson, Key West Key Lime Pie Company owner, Jim Brush and Extreme Chef Paul Menta. Their combined superpowers are guaranteed to create the finest Key Lime Pie in the land - or at the very least- the largest Key Lime Pie in the universe!
Souvenir t-shirts featuring the art of David Laughlin will be available at the event. Arrive early to meet David L. Sloan and get an autographed copy of his Key West Key Lime Pie Cookbook!
