“Not only are we still planning for Gasparilla, we’re still planning to make it fun too,” EventFest founder and president Darrell Stefany told the Tampa Bay Times. The Gasparilla Pirate Fest is scheduled to take place on January 30, 2021 and tickets for the event are now on sale. Since hundreds of thousands of people attend Gasparilla planning has begun on how to make the event safe. “It would be irresponsible for us to just sit on our hands and wait until January to start thinking about what we’re going to do,” Stefany said. “We have to do as much planning and backup planning as we can with what we know to create a safe event for people at a time they may need it most.”
They are strongly suggesting for people to buy tickets in advance and people will be grouped by household, with a minimum of one row and one seat between each party. Tickets start at $57 per person and you can purchase tickets here.
It will be a busy couple weeks as Gasparilla happens on January 30th and then Super Bowl 55, which is in Tampa, will happen the next weekend, February 7th.
