SLAMORADA, Florida Keys — Florida Keys visitors and residents can commemorate the subtropical island chain’s bicentennial Saturday, June 10, during a gala sea-to-table dinner in Islamorada, famed as the Sportfishing Capital of the World.
The banquet salutes the 200th anniversary of the Florida Territorial Legislature’s founding of Monroe County, which contains the entire Florida Keys, on July 3, 1823. As well as recognizing the historic anniversary, the dinner spotlights Islamorada’s longstanding fishing industry and captains, a vital aspect of the Keys’ vibrant two-century history.
“We welcome fans of Islamorada’s famous fishing along with those who savor the Keys’ exquisite seafood-centric cuisine to celebrate 200 years of fishing and dining during this unforgettable event,” said Judy Hull, executive director of the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce, organizer of the gala evening.
