Breezy Palms Resort - Islamorada

Although the clean-up and repairs at Breezy Palms due to Hurricane Irma are going well, they will not have the number and type of rooms needed to accomodate the PBC Planning Congress Group at a future date in November 2017 or December of 2017.  Therefore, Keys Fest 2017 has been CANCELLED.


October 5 - 7, 2018

Mark your calendars now for Keys Fest 2018 to be held on Columbus Day Weekend at the Breezy Palms Resort from Friday, October 5, 2017 - Sunday, October 7, 2017.  Our block of rooms also includes Sunday night, October 7th if you want to stay over until Monday, October 8, 2017.

  See below for more information about Keys Fest 2018.

Join the Palm Beach County Planning Congress at the oceanside Breezy Palms Resort in beautiful Islamorada for a weekend of good friends, good food and good times. This is a family event with snorkeling, boating, fishing, BBQ, shrimp boil, volleyball, watching football, or just loafing by the pool.

If you are planning to come, be sure to make your reservations early to get your preferred room (see below for more info).  If you have never attended this event, please consider coming. 

The Planning Congress reserves a cottage right on the beach for general use and hosting breakfast for everyone on Saturday and Sunday mornings.  The cabin has a porch where we set up a TV for football watching.  Friday night we cook up a welcome feast of sausage and peppers, hot dogs for the kids, and side dishes.  Typically we rent or members bring boats to take snorkelling trips out to the lighthouse that is directly offshore from the hotel on Saturday.  Saturday night is Dave Flinchum's famous Shrimp Boil.  You can come and be as busy or as lazy as you like!  Monday, October 8th is the Columbus Day Holiday so you can extend the weekend if you like.

The Breezy Palms Resort is an oceanside old style, family friendly Florida Keys resort with a mix of motel rooms, efficiencies, small bungalows, and one bedroom pool and ocean side apartments. PBCPC members bringing boats get complimentary dock space at the resort.  For more information about the Resort, check out their website at .  You can make your reservations on-line or contact the Resort toll free at 1-877-41BREEZ or 1-877-412-7339.  Be sure to mention that you are with the PBC Planning Congress to get our special rates and amenties.

If they are booked, there are a number of other reasonably priced hotels in the immediate vicinity.

The cost for this event (to cover food and other expenses) is shared by the participating group and is paid on the last official day of the event (Sunday morning) based on actual expenses. 

Please register if you are planning to attend so we can plan accordingly!
