Welcome to the online home of the St. Augustine Pirate Gathering hosted each year by the Ancient City Privateers. THIS year, the festival has a new location...and we personally invite you to join with us and pirates from all over the world who have made an annual pilgrimage to plant their flag and hoist a mug at The Gatherin'...
This festival began in 2008 with the hard work of passionate volunteers and has a rich HISTORY. The first event proved to be SO MUCH FUN that it is no wonder how it has grown into one of the country's best Pirate events and was recognized as one of the Top Five Pirate Festivals in the USA by USA Today!
Young pirates are welcome too! Kids LOVE Pirates and Pirates love to make Kids SMILE. This year we have a BIGGER Kidz Zone than ever...featuring a ZIP LINE that will bring out the inner pirate in both young and old. We also have a special $5 wristband that grants access ALL DAY to the INFLATABLE Rides so that the little ones can go AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN.
With the support of local businesses, volunteers, generous donors and corporate sponsors...your charitable contributions are then utilized by the Ancient City Privateers (a 501(c)3 charitable organization) to host this event with the net proceeds dedicated to supporting several selected charities each year...together creating a GOOD TIME for a GOOD CAUSE.
Daily Reasons the St Augustine Pirate Gathering will be better than ever in 2016
