Pirates played a major role in the settlement of Amelia Island, Florida, and they're still around today. Founded in October of 1973, the Fernandina Pirates are a lively and active presence in this lovely coastal Florida community.
Although our primary focus is on promoting our annual 'Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival', we are also interested in the community at large and try to do our part to better life in our charming little seaport town.
MONEY FOR COLLEGE: We are involved in many local charity events and sponsor our own annual SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST for Nassau County high school seniors. $1,500.00 to be awarded to the winning college bound student and $500.00 awarded to the winner entering the military.
PIRATES 4 HIRE: We make many public appearances for community and charitable events, but we can also be had for a price for private events!
We do hire out for private parties, corporate functions and the like as one of our avenues of fund raising for our pet projects.
