Every year follows a specific theme, and visitors are encourage to wear costumes and use body paint that match that theme. Visitors must follow the local laws regarding public nudity: full nudity is not allowed, and body painting must be done in a private area. Women may have nude painted breasts, but only within designated areas of the festival. Outside of these areas, they must wear a cover-up.

Fantasy Fest is a 10 day festival in Key West, Florida, which usually runs from the end of October to the beginning of November. The celebrations culminate on Halloween night. Fantasy Fest was started by the Key West Tourist Development Association to boost the local economy, and the celebration now produces more revenue for the town than any other week of the year.

Festival events can include food tasting, large parties at local bars, interactive fantasy role-playing experiences and costumed performances. The festival also features family-friendly events, including arts and crafts, rides, games, food, and a costume contest.
