That’s right, Matey! We, the Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc. are throwing our first ever, inaugural Fernandina Pirate Festival on October 9th, 10th and 11th, 2015.
Pirates from all over the seven seas are invited to attend. Festivities begin with Pirates marching, from the Veteran’s Memorial on Atlantic Avenue to 2nd and Ash Streets, parade style, where pirates will muster for opening ceremonies and then be set free to ravage and pillage historic, Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, Florida.
Saturday and Sunday, the Atlantic Avenue Recreational Center grounds will be home to the festival with family friendly entertainment, music, vendor tents, food booths, demonstrations, educational exhibits and more.
Saturday evening brings the Pirate’s Ball. Celebrating the Club’s 43rd year, this will be a ticketed event that includes a southern feast, costume contest and dancing to live music inside the Recreational Center.
The Fernandina Pirate Festival will conclude Sunday afternoon with closing ceremonies.
But, to get the ball really rolling, the Pirates need a logo for the event. Be as creative as you’d like, but please keep the following information in mind:
-The name of the club is Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc
-This is a family friendly event
-This is the 1st event
-The name of the event is Fernandina Pirate Festival
What does the winning artist receive? Well, since they are Pirates they have promised not to draw blood from the winner, but to honor the winning artist and a guest at the Pirates Ball on Saturday night. And of course, what all good pirates really want are “bragging rights” – so the winning artist will get those, too. As a non-profit, they hate to promise too much, but don’t be surprised if they plunder a few more prizes for the winner.
All artist entries must be sent to info@FernandinaPirates.com or mailed to Fernandina Pirates Club, P.O. Box 17243, Fernandina Beach, FL 32035. (Emails are answered by a volunteer, please be patient as the email is NOT checked on a daily basis.)
All submissions must be received or post-marked by midnight on June 30, 2015.
