pirate fest parrotIt’s that time of year again! Grab your mateys and don your best pirate garb, it’s time for the 9th Annual Pirate Fest! This free, family-friendly event hits the shores of Fort Myers Beach on October 10 – October 12.   It will once again bring talented live entertainers, great music, giveaways, and loads of activities to plunder for people of all ages!

Set sail on Friday night at 6pm with the Pub Quest, where thirsty scallywags can throw back grog with the festival’s costumed Pirate Captains while touring the island’s taverns. On Saturday, the opening cannon starts things off with a boom.  A daily parade follows at 10am at Mantanzas Pass, with balloon twisters, hair braiders, storytellers, and performers gathered nearby.

Little buccaneers will enjoy interactive shows, a children’s fishing tournament (with a free fishing pole to the first 25 children) and a kiddie costume contest. After enjoying the entertainment, festival goers can shop the marketplace and load up on pirate loot like jeweled glassware, handcrafted leather wearables, custom metal art, weaponry, and other trinkets and treasures.

Festival highlights you won’t want to miss:

  • An exciting pirate ship battle at Mantanzas Pass
  • Wicked Dolphin Rum and Captain Morgan tasting event
  • An adults-only Pirate’s Ball costume contest (hosted by Nervous Nellies)
  • Scavenger Hunt & Giveaway, where searchers can win cool prizes like Florida Everblades tickets, gift certificates, and free hotel stays!
