The 12th Annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival will be held October 6-8 2017 on Old San Carlos Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach Florida. 

Pub Quest will kick off the event on Friday night, and festivities continue throughout the weekend from 10am-5pm. 

Enjoy live pirate-themed entertainment on 3 stages, a stellar line-up on vendors row, and lots of fun and games for the kids.  Witness the biggest, most exciting Ship to Shore Sea Battle you have ever seen, up close, in the deep waters of beautiful Matanzas Pass. Don’t miss your chance to win lots of prizes in the Adult and Children’s Costume Contests, held daily at different locations. Kids can play the “Find the Pirate Game”, which takes them on a wild goose chase to locate the wanted pirates.  Once the pirates are found, the wee buccaneers can claim their booty bags at the Pirate Encampment. 

All ages are welcome to join in the Pie Eating Contest, held each day by the main stage.  Adults will enjoy rum tastings and special offers throughout this weekend of never ending fun.  Bring out your inner shopper and browse thousands of hand crafted items presented by some of the most talented artists in the country. 

This festival was rated the #2 Pirate Festival in the Nation by USA TODAY, so make your plans to set sail for Fort Myers Beach today.   See you tharrr!

It is with great sadness that we must inform our pirate community of the loss of the Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival. The beach has decided to sponsor the Offshore Powerboat Races instead of continuing to host our beloved Pirate Fest. I will, as the Admiral, seek a new venue. Please look here for updates. ...

Cape Coral Yacht Club! You need a new spot, and the Cape needs more things like that. I'll help of needed. It's my hometown and I know some folks.

Hope they enjoy their crappy, smelly, algae-infested water for their boat races 👍👍🤣😂

What? I loved Pirate 🏴‍☠️ Fest. Bummer, now where am I going to wear my plastic shoulder parrot 🦜?

It’s all about the Benjamin’s

Little by little big $$$ takes the fun of small cozy fun towns.... sad to hear..... we used to go... I guess not anymore...

Whom should we write to to express our discontent to?

Let me know if you want to combine forces with SWFLSteamCon for our event SEPT 14 -- we'll be at the Crowne Plaza hotel this year so not the best venue for everything but maybe we could figure something out -- Pirates (especially steampunk pirates) are welcome to attend...

This is unfortunate. The 2nd largest Pirate Festival in the USA being keel hauled. Sad.

this is such a disappointment 😩

The loss of your fun festival saddens my heart. Hoping you find a new perfect venue. Fun seems to be losing hold in Lee County.

Their bloody loss

Come up to Punta gorda!

So sorry to hear this. I really enjoyed it.

There will always be new places to explore and times to get together.

Very sad to hear.

They should share event with pirate's we liven up place

What about downtown? I heard it was once held there is that correct?

I guess that 15.00 outfit I can sell now?

Oh no!!!!! That really surprises me!!! That is an annual thing i looked forward to since moving here. Is riverside park too small?

I don't see why they cant do both...

Bummer, thank you for all you do xoxo

Such a loss, it was a great event

Praying a new location is found sweet Belinda

How about a kickstarter to fund it?

We loved being there during the pirate festival
