Cedar Key Pirate Invasion:  Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2018 – BE THERE!!!


News Alert: Due to a scheduling foul-up, we’ve lost the use of the City Park on Saturday.  Consequently, there will not be a Pirate Encampment this year and all vendors will be lined up along 2nd Street next to the park.

It has been rumored that Jean Lafitte, the famous privateer, had buried some treasure somewhere in Cedar Key.

He is coming back to town under cover of darkness, with pirates from all over the eastern seaboard and a small armada of ships.

Come, celebrate with the pirates! Visit our  trade and commerce area. Come and purchase wares and clothing from foreign lands. Listen to rousing, toe tapping sea shanties.

Prepare for the parade Saturday morning. All the scallawags in town will be in attendance.

For the adult pirates, sample piratical libations all over town, be entertained by the finest pirate musicians in the land, find treasures beyond measure at the thieves market.

Epic Battle for Cedar Key!

Friday night brings the Pirate Parlay and Treasure Auction. Find amazing wares from across the globe, all will be auctioned off and a portion of the proceeds will go to Cayla’s Coats, this year’s chosen organization.

Then prepare for battle!   The clash of steel and the the smell of gunpowder will fill the air on Saturday evening.  We’re making plans for the epic contest among rival pirate crews…  And we’ll cap the day off with a dazzling fireworks display out over the water for all to enjoy!

Sunday morn will dawn with many exhausted pirates who will head to the streets for more music, more fun and the final cannon shot around 4pm.

Only time will tell the outcome, but whatever happens, you are in for a weekend of fun, merriment and a piratical good time.
