Pirate Festival – Fort Myers Beach, FL

Posted by Barb On September 9th


If you haven’t been to the annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival yet, then we suggest setting aside a week in October to come down to Estero Island to partake in the festivities…especially if you enjoy dressing up in costumes.

Let the festivities begin!

The 8th Annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival will kick off at 6pm on Friday October 11th with a Pub Crawl along Old San Carlos Boulevard and surrounding areas.

Bands of roving pirates will be accompanied from pub to pub by Daniel O’Ryan and the Craic show, where songs will be sung and ale will be drunk!

But don’t be concerned about Pirates acting like as Pirates do with all their drunken debauchery. This is a family friendly event.

Family friendly entertainment

This year, there are plenty of side shows, contests, and battles for the whole family to enjoy including:

  • Blue mermaids in their tank
  • A family variety show starring Cap’n Jase n Sparrows
  • A dance party at the Pirates Ball
  • A pirate costume contest
  • Family friendly entertainment starring Arrr Inc.
  • A battle at sea
  • A drum circle

…and so much more.

If you’d like to see photos, videos, and a schedule of events for the upcoming Fort Myers Beach Pirate Fest, visit their website or their Facebook page.

And if you’re bringing the whole family, don’t rent a small, cramped hotel room. Stay in a large, spacious, beachfront house that your kids will LOVE. You can even bring your dog.

Oh, and don’t worry about lugging around any of the children’s toys since this can become quite costly when checking your bags on the plane.

We’ve got plenty of toys for rent.

Can’t wait to see you for the next Pirate Festival here on beautiful Fort Myers Beach!

Remember, it’s always beach-time at Lahaina!
