Pirate’s Fest- 12th Annual Island Takeover

It’s a pirate’s life for me! Tybee once again is set to be pillaged and plundered by grungy, bearded pirates next month. October 6-9th, we will be under siege! We can’t wait! This will be the 12th annual celebration for this beloved event. This is the place to be and a wonderful time to visit the beach as temperatures are beginning to drop. Colder beach days are so beautiful!
Last year, our very own Lannie & Stacye Jarrell were crowned King and Queen of Pirate Fest. We couldn’t be happier! This exciting honor is announced at the Buccaneer’s Ball, which kicks off everything. This swashbuckling shin dig is always a good time with good people. There is grog and grub a plenty! Also, be prepared to dance the heels off of your pirate boots!
