The 9th Annual Tybee Island Pirate Festival

Swashbucklers of all ages will be converging on Tybee Island to participate in the 9th Annual Tybee Island Pirate Festival! Thar be a Pirate Parade, Live Entertainment, Costume Contests, Children’s Activities and the Thieves Market filled with treasures, grog and grub!

The event begins with the Swashbuckler's Bash on Thursday night at 7:00 pm (cost is $30 per person in advance and $35 at the door).  The Pirate Festival opens on Friday at 5:00 pm and runs the entire weekend (cost is $17.50 per person in advance and $20 at the gate).  For details, please check www.tybeepiratefest.com

The Tybee Island Pirate Festival 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 Tourism Council, and local businesses the event has grown in popularity each year.
