Old City Pirate Fest
Everyone is invited to become a pirate for a weekend at the Second Annual Old City Pirate Fest in St. Augustine on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, January 26, 27, and 28, 2018. This full weekend of pirate-themed fun geared for the whole family will be hosted by the St. Augustine Swashbucklers at the Colonial Quarter.
This will be a festival of all things pirate, with plenty of food and drink, music and entertainment, and activities for the whole family, including live entertainment on two stages, a lively kids area with games and prizes, a vendors row with tons of pirate merchandise, and black powder and sword demonstrations. There will be puppet shows, musicians, and magicians on hand each day to entertain both adult pirate fans and little pirates-in-training.
Tickets can be purchased for the fest day for $7 for adults, $5 for students aged 13-20, and $2 for kids 12 and under.
The Friday night concert will feature Tuatha Dea. The Saturday night concert, featuring Nashville group Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers, will take place at the Colonial Oak stage. Concert tickets are $15 per person in advance and $25 day of show.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Dreams Come True, Give Kids the World, and the Swashbuckler’s “Toys for P.I.T.S. Drive.”
