Join us for the annual Tybee Island Pirate Fest! Entertainment includes live music, pirate performers, a parade, and a few surprises in between.
Tybee Pirate Fest is fun for pirates of all ages. Our littlest pirates enjoy an entire area devoted to quality family entertainment. Children also enjoy participating in our costume contests and pirate parade. Check back for a detailed schedule or subscribe to our blog for details.
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.
