Key West has a rich and colorful history, but perhaps the most prestigious character to enjoy the Southernmost Sunshine was the 33rd President of theUnited States, Harry S. Truman. Between 1946 and 1952, President Truman made a dozen trips to his winter home, now dubbed the Truman Little White House. The house became a site for the Cold War response, and has hosted several U.S. Presidents as guests. (Presidential visits.) This historical home can serve as a one-of-a-kind event venue for your next corporate dinner reception!  Dine outside under a canopy of trees and string lights on the lush green lawns surrounding the house. The property can host upwards of 400 people!

Eva + Kyle’s Dream Wedding

Eva and Kyle became engaged to be married in June 2014.  This lovely couple really wanted the wedding to focus on their friends, family, and one-year old daughter Blake.

Their ceremony took place at a classic venue, the Audubon House, and they partied the night away on the Westin Sundeck.  We have some fabulous photos (thanks to Romi Photos) to share with you!

Great Cooking Session with Great Events

When planning our corporate events, we are always looking to find new and fun ways to enhance the groups Key West experience.

We have dabbled in several things from team building with sand sculptures to working with Project Challenge for their “Build a Boat” project.  But there is always room for more fun and eclectic ideas. Key West is renowned for fantastic cuisine, and often so many are eager to explore what dining experiences our little island has to offer…but when given the chance to work hands-on with Great Event’s Chef David Furhman, we couldn’t resist taking a recent group there!
