The 2021 Children’s Gasparilla scheduled for Saturday, January 23, 2021, is an alcohol-free, family event that annually launches the Gasparilla season in Tampa. The annual event invites pirates of all ages to witness a series of expertly-designed parade floats, krewes, marching bands, dance units and more in the Children’s Gasparilla Parade.

The excitement comes to a close with Children’s Gasparilla “Piratechnic” Finale, which lights up the sky above Bayshore Boulevard beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The 2021 Gasparilla Invasion Brunch, scheduled for Saturday, January 30, 2021, has been a Gasparilla tradition since the late 1980s. Brunch ticket holders enjoy a bountiful feast and live entertainment at the Tampa Convention Center and witness the Krewe’s fully-rigged pirate ship – the Jose Gasparilla II – and its accompanying flotilla of boats invade the shore.

Shortly after, the 2021 Gasparilla Parade of Pirates, presented by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla, steps off at 2 p.m. The focal point of Tampa’s Gasparilla Pirate Fest activities, the parade boasts approximately 130 colorful floats, bands, and Jose Gaspar’s swashbuckling pirates.
