Avast! Welcome to the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival!

Citizens of Fort Walton Beach, visiting pirates and tourists beware!

As we are uncertain as to the what will be allowed in regards to social distancing, number of people permitted to gather in groups, etc. we have decided that this year we will not offer vendor booths. We are encouraging all our downtown merchants and local businesses to take advantage of the weekend festivities and possible crowds by encouraging their associates to dress in pirate attire, decorate their store fronts, and offer food and beverage specials as they are able to.

While there is an abundance of uncertainty at this time, we look forward to the opportunity to gather, to celebrate, and welcome out of town vendors and guests back to our signature events and festivals in the near future!
