Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition

Calling all pirates, privateers, and swashbucklers to the Henry B. Plant Museum!  On January 14th, Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition sails into the Museum.  Dive deep into the history of Tampa’s oldest and most fun-loving community festival.  This exhibit explores the uncharted waters of more than 110 years of parades, pirate invasions, coronation balls, and more.  Gaze at vintage photographs from 1904 to the present, see memorabilia including invitations and pirate tokens, and marvel at gowns worn by Gasparilla queens and members of their courts.  Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition will run from January 14th to February 28, 2022 and is underwritten by Janice & Steve Straske and Queen Gasparilla CVII Davis Straske and Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla.
