Per tradition, the Florida Powerboat Club will produce its Key West Poker Run Poker Run Village during its early November signature trek to the city at the end of the Florida road—and it’s always a rocking-good display of high-performance powerboats and hardware. But thanks to Race World Offshore, which is producing the concurrently running American Power Boat Association/Union Internationale Motonautique Offshore Word Championships (November 6-13), poker runners and racing fans will have another extensive display area to explore.

According to a post on the Race World Offshore website, “The Vendor Village in Truman Waterfront Park will be open all week for guests and locals to enjoy. Browse a variety of merchandise, hand crafted goods, souvenirs, tasty treats and adult beverages from local and preferred vendors. Many of these vendors also will be on the Outer Mole, which is among the best viewing areas for the racing on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
Tickets are required for access to the Outer Mole. They can be purchased on site at the Race World Offshore exhibit/kiosk in the entry to Truman Park Waterfront.
Registration for the Vendor Village is still open. Would-be vendors apply by clicking here.
In an unrelated move, Race World Offshore has canceled its Thursday night reggae concert in the Truman Park Waterfront amphitheater.
“There are concerts all week and we didn’t want to overdo it, especially on Thursday night with the Speed On The Water Key West Bash presented by CMR Construction and Roofing,” said Larry Bleil, the president and founder of Race World Offshore. “Thursday night is covered.”
