Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival

JUN 3 – JUN 6

Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival – Probably the best Pirate festival in the world! This long-running Fort Walton Beach tradition is in its 60th year, and brings a full weekend of nautical fun to the Landing. Watch Capt. Billy and his Krewe invade the city, while the FWB mayor works hard to protect his fair city and citizens.  There’s entertainment, grog and grub aplenty for sailors and landlubbers alike. This is the FWB Chamber’s signature event, and is always held the first weekend in June. (Up to 20,000 visitors over the course of two days.) By popular request, the Torchlight Parade has been moved back to Monday evening prior to festival days.
