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.

Can't wait!

Saw them in the late 80’s. One of my all time favorites!!

It’s ok... they are there Friday 😂

Saw Jack Russell's Great White last November, and it was superb!! I wouldn't dream of seeing the band doing his songs without him.

I think that’s my Aunt Pat second from the left.

Outdoors, I hope...

I hope the venue has fire insurance

I saw them about ten years ago. With Coverdale. Great show

Saw them with molly hatchet....awesome show....dont miss it..well worth going

no Jack. on there 3ed singer. I used to see them every tour till Jack left.

Seen them downtown Savannah at Axis, old Congress St Station on their 95/96 acoustic tour when Jack Russell was still with them . Great show! Would love to see them again, but will be at the Exit 111 festival.

Another band to check out...The Jake Bartley band!! 😉

Sorry no jack russle no great white i hope mark Kendall is still there

Better keep those fire extinguishers close!

Saw them in the late 80s. They were awful. The crowd started chanting the name of the next band to play.

Please no hold my beer marsh adventures folks.

Mitch Malloy is singing for them now? He’s really good.

When I go I'm wearing fire proof clothing......

No Jack, no go 😞

No Jack Russell No Great White!

No Jack Russell? Nope. No. Hell no. Nope. (Did I mention “no”?)

Make sure they have a proper plan in case of fire from pyrotechnics. This is the same group who killed all the fans up North when their pyro show ignited the building.

Rememer a band named Departure?? 😉
