Tybee Island Pirate Fest is your ultimate destination for Columbus Day weekend entertainment. Warming up for the Friday and Saturday night headliners, several bands will keep the crowd moving throughout the afternoons and early evening. Daytime entertainment includes live music, pirate performers, street performers, magicians, puppeteers, weaponry demonstrations, and few surprises in between.
Tybee Island Pirate Fest is fun for pirates of all ages. The littlest pirates enjoy an entire area devoted to quality family entertainment. Activities include bounce houses, magicians, storytellers, puppets, live pirate demonstrations, face painting, and many more surprises. Children also enjoy participating in our costume contests and pirate parade.
A Brief History:
Tybee Pirate Fest began in 2005 with a small handful of individuals that were looking for a unique event to help boost visitation to the island in the off-season months. The first year was even more successful than the organizers, a non-profit called Tybeefest, even imagined it could be. With the support of many dedicated volunteers, The City of Tybee Island and its elected officials, the Tybee Island Tourism Council, and local businesses the event has grown in popularity each year.
There are lots of activities for families, loads of entertainment and a Thieves Market filled with treasures. The festival grounds have grown to encompass the entire South Beach Parking Lot by the Tybee Pier from Tybrisa Street to 18th Street. Hope you find your way to the Annual Pirate Fest on Tybee Island located only 20 minutes from Savannah GA historical district.
