Tybee Island Pirate Fest 2016Batten down the hatches and fetch me the grog! Tybee Island Pirate Fest is mere weeks away, scheduled for October 6th through the 9th, 2016. Will you be there – or are you optin’ to walk the plank instead? Arrrrrr!

It’s true! Tybee Island Pirate Festival is almost upon us, though you’re in little danger from being keelhauled or forced to walk the plank at this popular, annual festival.

Tybee Island Pirate Fest is a great place to unleash your inner pirate during a weekend of music, food, and grog. There’s also a boat-load of events like The Buccaneer Ball, Pirate Parade, Thieves Market, and more!

The Buccaneer Ball kicks off the whole shebang with live entertainment, costume contests, and the crowning of the 2016 Pirate Fest King and Queen. Held at the Crab Shack, you’ll also have access to some of Tybee Island’s best food and drink! Yum!

The Thieves Market is a great place to find the perfect souvenir or addition to your pirate costume. Pirate-wares, costumes, arts and crafts, and more are here for your choosing. If the Thieves Market doesn’t have it, then you don’t need it! For the Pirate Fest, anyway …

The annual Pirate Parade is a must-do. You’ll want to get ahead of the crowd, if possible, for a good seat from which to see all the elaborate pirate ship floats and outrageous pirate costumes. You can even register to join in, should you be so moved!

New this year is Friday night’s Pirate Pub Crawl. When you collect your entry tickets at the main gate on Friday, you’ll receive a punch card with all the participating bars. Get your card punched at 6 participating bars and receive a Tybee Island Pirate Fest t-shirt or can cozy keepsake.

Musical entertainment for Pirate Fest is set to include Grammy Award winner Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Buffett tribute band A1A, rockers Big Engine, and musical pirates, The Brigands!
