Tybee Island Pirate Festival

2016 Dates – Oct. 6-9th

The warm summer breezes have become little more than a memory.  With the onslaught of October, creaking planks, wind blowing the sails and the chants of pirates fill the Tybee air. October 6th-9th , 2016 visitors and locals alike can celebrate the days of yore as Tybee Island turns into a pirate village!

The Tybee Island Pirate Fest began in 2005 with the hard work of passionate volunteers.  After such an amazing success with the first event, it is no wonder how it has grown into one of Tybee’s largest and most swashbuckling festivals!  Every Columbus Day Weekend local pirates and those from far distant lands converge on our small island for a weekend of music, food, and of course grog.  Young pirates are welcome too!  We have Little Matey’s Cove which is sure to entertain and of course they will not want to miss our 11th Annual Pirate Victory Parade!  With the support of the City of Tybee Island, many of our local businesses, generous corporate sponsors, and volunteers, this event promises to entertain the most discerning pirates.          

Thank you for joining us.
May a good time be had by all!
Fare ye well.
