Tybee island (a pirates paradise) located 20 minutes east of historic SAVANNAH, is the location of plenty of swashbuckling family-friendly fun.  The warm summer breezes have become little more than a memory.  With the onslaught of October, creaking planks, wind blowing the sails and the chants of pirates fill the Tybee air. October 6th-9th , 2016 visitors and locals alike can celebrate the days of yore as Tybee Island turns into a pirate village!

The Tybee Pirate Fest offers three days of piratical live music and family-friendly activities at Tybee Island’s South Beach parking lot, located on Tybrisa Street. The festivities kick off at the Buccaneer Ball at THE CRAB SHACK on October 6, 2016. 

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 treasure.

The festival grounds have grown to encompass the entire South Beach Parking Lot by the Tybee Pier from Tybrisa Street to 18th Street. This website provides the history of the event and lots of other pirate stuff. Hope you find it useful and it helps you find your way to the Annual Pirate Fest on Tybee Island located only 20 minutes from Savannah GA historical district and the cobble stone River Street.

Dear Pirates,

For all the obvious reasons, and respect for our community and visitors, we find it necessary to cancel the 2020 Tybee Island Pirate Festival. Know that we will spend our time and energy putting together the best 2021 Tybee Pirate Fest possible.

Stay Safe. Stay Strong. Pirate On! 🏴‍☠️☠️🏴‍☠️

I shall retire from public until this pestilence has left the land..

So sad but glad you're doing it. More important for everyone to be safe. We appreciate you and your charities

Captain Jack Sparrow can defeat an entire fleet of Covid-19 by himself.

Bummed out.. but... hopefully we can still make it to Tybee for the weekend at least... and next year we will be there for Pirate Fest for sure!

Sad but its for everyone's safety.

So sad, but completely understandable. Stay safe and stay strong and 2021 will be the best festival ever!

Well I am at a loss for words and really really bummed out!!!

Sad, but on the up side, it gives Tybee Island Pirate Fest time to book me for 2021! www.facebook.com/johnatkinsonmusic/

This year has not been a lot of fun...

Even though the festival won’t happen this year, y’all are all still welcome to come down and dress in your best garb. Pirates are always welcome on Tybee!

See you next year

Sandy Nieland Thrower 😭😭 I mean, I understand.....but still

Good decision

My sediments too, little guy!!!

Makes perfect sense. Well done for allowing common sense to rule, something that some people think shouldn't happen (give me strength, Lord) 😊

Difficult decision.. always enjoy it every year and will be ready for next year

Anything morally fun to do together is all cancelled. It appears that our world these days only find riots and destruction acceptable to do.

Arrrr. we are lawless who needs tents and tshirts. see you in October

Honestly they are dealing with pirates!! They should expect a revolt!! Pirate Fest for life!!!!

Noooooo! We were planning on doing my hubby a 50th birthday pirate weekend. 😭 He's going to be so disappointed! Arrrghh!

Difficult decision for sure. Your graphic is absolutely the best!

Nooooooooooo😭 Alcohol, 277 Jack Sparrows and music kills the virus😭😭

Just cancelled my hotel ..

Debra Moulin Sanders, depending on Becca's due date, this should not stop you from visiting. We'll have our own pirate festival.

Charissa Murray , I do not envy you right now. Stay strong, we love you!

We wrote your name in the sky,
But the wind blew it away.
We wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
We wrote your name in our hearts,
And forever it will stay.

Fair Winds and Following Seas, Queen Iris. Till we meet again…
RIP
