Important news - Pirate Fest is Now a 2-Day Festival - Read more
We hope it is understood that the removal of Friday was an absolute necessity. With the rising of costs of labor, rentals, etc., and being as Friday was the pirate festival's most expensive day per hour, the decision was made to truncate Fridays and continue the Pirate Fest from this year forward as a 2-day festival.

Bookaneer Tent - The Scarlett Fortuna's Bookaneer Tent is designed to provide FREE books to children much like a community library. Children are encouraged to take a book home, swap out books for new ones, or donate gently used books for the next child to enjoy! Books range from just learning to young adult novels - one book per child while supplies last!
We the Krewe of the Scarlett Fortuna birthed in Pinellas, Florida work towards promoting education and reading among school age children by partnering with charitable organizations and foundations, performing themed events, and bringing their literature to life. Collectively as a Krewe, we strive to earn funds to assist with our events and donations to further our cause as we work to restore the fun and excitement in learning by promoting their literature one 'R' at a time.
