The Papa Look-Alike Contest


The Papa Look-Alike Contest: July 17-19, 2014

Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Key West will host its 34th Annual Hemingway Look-Alike contest July 17-19, 2014. The contest is one of many events in Key West to celebrate the birthday of Ernest Hemingway and honor his work as author and sportsman.

The competition starts with the first preliminary round on Thursday, July 17th, second preliminary round on Friday, July 18th, and finals on Saturday, July 19th.

From each preliminary round finalists are chosen. The 2013 competition had 125 Look-Alikes taking the stage with 12 contestants from Thursday night preliminary and 13 from Friday night preliminary going on to the final round.

Look-Alikes are everywhere, it’s a load of fun! Come early, get a good seat and watch the competition.

The infamous Hemingway Look-Alike Society invites you to join the Society. They will be at Sloppy Joe’s to sign-up new members.
