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.
