Support the local community and have a blast at the Tybee Island Pirate Fest. Volunteers help man the gate and entrances, monitor the kid’s area, parade and the main stage tent. Volunteers are guaranteed to have a good time at this event.
Tybee Island Pirate Fest combines the quirkiness of Tybee with the fantasy of pirate life. For four days over Columbus Day weekend, our little island is transformed into a swashbuckling pirate village. The event includes a thieves market, Little Matey’s Cove, Pirate Victory Parade, Mugs of Mutiny Tavern-a pirate pub, and live music.
Volunteers receive a t-shirt and entrance to the event. Alcohol is not permitted at any time during volunteer shifts.
