Public details: Join us for a weekend of fun in downtown Tampa! I am staying at the Hilton Tampa Downtown, 211 N. Tampa Street, both friday and Saturday night. An expanded Pirate Fest in 2020 will feature stages along the Riverwalk in downtown Tampa, presented by Budweiser. Pirate Fest will feature stages with live entertainment pre and post parade in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park (Ashley and Twiggs), and MacDill Park (Ashley and Whiting). Entertainment lineup will be announced soon.

About Gasparilla Pirate Fest: The 2020 Seminole Hard Rock Gasparilla Pirate Fest is scheduled for 9:00am to 9:00pm on Saturday, January 25, 2020, in Tampa and will feature the 103nd Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of the Pirates presented by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla.

Following another successful invasion by the pirates of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla, the focus shifts to beautiful Bayshore Boulevard and South Ashley Drive in downtown Tampa. After successfully capturing the Key to the City (once again), the pirates of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla celebrate with a victory parade that begins at 2 p.m. at Bay to Bay and Bayshore. The 4.5 mile Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates, which has been presented by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla annually since 1904, winds its way along Hillsborough Bay into downtown Tampa, with over 140 units – featuring one-hundred three (103) floats, three (5) marching bands and over fifty (50) participating social organizations (i.e. krewes).

The Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates will travel from Bayshore into downtown Tampa. The Parade will cross into downtown over the Brorein Street bridge, turn north on Ashley Drive, and end at Cass Street and Ashley Drive in the heart of the Cultural Arts District in downtown Tampa.

Sunday from 10a.m. to 4p.m. is the Jazz Festival. Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla and EventFest are excited to announce that Smooth Jazz artist NAJEE will headline the 1st Annual Gasparilla JazzFEST on Sunday, January 26, 2020 in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park…. a new addition to the Seminole Hard Rock Gasparilla Pirate Fest in downtown, Tampa.

Gasparilla JazzFEST will feature live entertainment from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 26, 2020. JazzFEST is family friendly and FREE to attend. There will be several vendors and food trucks on site, each with a variety of brunch options available.

“We are delighted to add the Gasparilla JazzFEST and Sunday Brunch to our 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Gasparilla Pirate Fest schedule” said Darrell Stefany, President of EventFest and Project Manager for Tampa’s signature Gasparilla Community events (Children’s Gasparilla and Gasparilla Pirate Fest). “With construction in downtown reducing our Pirate Fest stages on Saturday, the expansion to include Sunday became a logical addition to our Gasparilla festivities” said Stefany. “While our guests come for the Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of the Pirates on Saturday, they’ll come out on Sunday for the music, and we are thrilled to have NAJEE headlining our Sunday JazzFEST this year!” Stefany added.
