We won't keep you waiting any longer! The dates for the 2018 Cedar Key Pirate Invasion will be Nov. 30 - Dec. 2! Thank you all who participated in our poll and to all the great feedback we got on alternate dates. Weighing all factors (and the anchor), we decided the first weekend of December would be the best choice for our local businesses, lodging providers, vendors, and of course our attendees. The poll ended up at 59% favoring the December dates and 41% favoring the September dates.
However, we think a significant number of the September votes were really "not December" votes but there were only the two choices. You made your intentions known in the comments though! And we thought long and hard about other dates in November. But it seems that, once you eliminate Thanksgiving weekend, the remaining weekends were already hosting several pirate and/or renaissance festivals that would splinter the festival market and make difficult choices for everyone.
So, weekend after Thanksgiving it is... Huzzah! Stay tuned on Facebook and watch our website for details on this year's line up of events and entertainment at the "Best Little Pirate Town in Florida".
Our brand new website is coming... eventually.
