January is a gorgeous month in the Florida Keys, with mild sunny days, a cool breeze in the evening, and minimal precipitation. It’s the perfect time for outdoor entertainment, and Islamorada has options for both foodies and art lovers.
Between January 10-20, Florida Keys Uncorked Food & Wine Festival offers a cornucopia of foodie events, including: wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, food and wine pairing classes, and more. The festival spans Islamorada and Key Largo and presents a variety of cuisines, from casual to gourmet. Check out the schedule to reserve tastings, tours, and pre-fixe meals according to your budget.

The family-friendly event will take place at San Pedro Catholic Church in Islamorada. Admission to the festival is free; onsite parking is $5. Proceeds go to helping the less fortunate in the Keys community.
