Pirates of the High Seas Fest

  • 03 Oct 2018

Ahoy, matey!! Looking for some swashbuckling adventures over Columbus Day? Head to Panama City Beach, Florida for our annual Pirates of the High Seas Fest! Enjoy three days of family fun from October 5-7, 2018. The free festival spans the entire city with events taking place at both Pier Park and Grand Lagoon.


Friday Highlights

Your little one will love the special kids pirate parade that starts at 6 pm in Pier Park! Make sure to get there early to get a good viewing spot. The Opening Ceremonies, which will include a Treasure Drop, will be held at Pier Park’s Center Stage at 6:45 pm. Spend the rest of the night listening to live music from Victor Wainwright & The Train, enjoying the second parade and the fireworks off of the city pier at 9:15 pm!


Saturday Highlights

For those athletically-inclined pirates, there will be a Pirate 5k Run/ Walk at Frank Brown Park  at 8:00 am. Too early for you? No worries, as the rest of the festivities start at noon with the opening of the Little Pirates Fun Zone in the Grand Theatre Plaza. Make your way to the Pier Stage by 2:30 pm for the Pirate Invasion and be sure to have your camera ready! There will also be magic and music performances going on throughout the day at the Celebration Stage.


Sunday Highlights

The last day of the festival will be held at Grand Lagoon (plenty of parking in front of Captain Anderson’s). Bring your little ones to the Marina Dock for the Kids Fishing Clinic at noon! After all, pirates need nourishment for all their plundering. Listen to The Legend of Dominique Youx on the Main Stage before witnessing the epic Pirate Battle in the Grand Lagoon Marina! The festival ends with live music, a Pirate Pet Parade and fireworks!
