VERO BEACH – Join us September 17th through 19th at Riverside Park as our 7th Annual Family-friendly Celebration of Piracy returns with Delicious Caribbean Foods, Island Style Festivities and a Boatload of Pirates and Activities.

The Vero Beach Pirate and Caribbean Festival is held under the shade of 300 year old oak trees in beautiful Riverside Park located at 3258 Riverside Park Drive Vero Beach, FL 32963

Shop the Nautical and Pirate themed vendors as you enjoy delicious Caribbean Foods, Tropical Drinks and Cocktails as you listen to Steel Drums, Calypso and Reggae along with Pirate tunes and Sea Shanties. Come out and have fun with the pirates many of you have grown to know over the years.

Be sure to check out the pirate weapon demonstrations and There’s plenty for the younger pirates as well like a kids’ costume contest, guided treasure hunts, the Quest Game, which is an interactive hunt for wanted pirates brought to you by the Royal Chessmen, and the very popular Little Buccaneer Kid’s Zone, with pay per play bounce house, activities and more. In addition, for a small boarding fee, young pirates can have the times of their lives seeking adventure on the Pirate Ship Avenger, a nearly 40 foot long replica pirate ship that has 5 amazing interactive decks for kids to explore.

The Scarlet Fortuna will be featuring their pirate themed Mobile Book Tent, where inside the only treasures are books, books and more books to share! Bring your children by to receive a book free of charge (while supplies last), or donate a new or gently used children's book, or even swap them. Help these pirates promote literature one ‘R’ at a time!

You may also want to visit the Pirate School, better known as the Pirate University, where both young and old can learn from the Governess, how to become a proper pirate.

Be on the lookout for mermaids, parrots and pirates as you explore all the fun things to do while at the festival. Meet world famous Treasure Hunter Carl Fismer. Enjoy a magic show from Lafitte, Magic of a Caribbean Con Man. Is he a Magician disguised as Con Man or a Con Man disguised as a Magician?
