Fun Filled Day of Family Friendly Piracy

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA -The 4th Annual Cocoa Beach Pirate Fest will take place on Saturday, June 27th at the International Palms Resort & Conference Center. This free and family-friendly event is geared up to entertain scallywags of all ages. All of the fun and excitement is packed into a single day this year. Traditionally this pirate festival is a 3 day event held on Father’s Day weekend, but is currently being restructured with plans to expand into a major event next year, possibly utilizing the adjacent Lori Wilson Park.

Visitors of the Cocoa Beach Pirate Fest will have an opportunity to shop unique arts and crafts and pirate themed vendors both indoors and out and enjoy some delicious foods and tasty treats. They can also listen to live music performed by some great pirate bands and strolling minstrels, visit Blackbeard’s Pirate Ship and the Living History Pirate Encampment, as well as experience historic weapon demonstrations which demonstrate the use of flintlocks and cannons. Kids will have fun with an interactive treasure hunt and can watch or participate in a water cannon battle in a large knee-deep pirate themed pool. Those who keep a weather eye, may even see a beautiful mermaid basking in the very same pool.

New this year, there will be even more kids activities courtesy of Fun 4 Space Coast Kids, Macaroni Kid of North Brevard, and Space Coast Kids Discovery Center who will invite children to dig for treasure and will also be bringing out their very own kid friendly pirate ship. Also new to the festival this year, there will be an opportunity for kids and adults to show their marksmanship and compete using fully functional and kid safe crossbows. While many interactive activities are free, some do require a small fee or a welcomed donation.

Inside you can meet world renowned celebrity artists Don Maitz, creator of the Captain Morgan Spiced Rum Character and Michael Noles who is famous for his decades of work with Disney. Both artists will be on hand in the Dolphin Room signing autographs and selling their artwork. Don Maitz will be signing event posters while supplies last.
