2023 Gasparilla Parade Information

One of the most popular attractions in Tampa is the annual Gasparilla Pirate Fest, which has been a tradition in Tampa since 1905.  Over 300,000 spectators are expected to line the streets to watch the Ashley Children's Gasparilla Parade presented by Chick-fil-A on January 21, 2023 and the Seminole Hard Rock Gasparilla Pirate Fest on January 28, 2023.  In order to accommodate the parades, many streets will be closed. This page will provide you event details, street closures, parade routes and other information that will help you enjoy the festivities safely.

Neighborhood Parking Maps

In our efforts to be environmentally conscious, the City of Tampa will no longer be mailing out individual neighborhood letters and parking maps for Gasparilla. Access to all Gasparilla-related information including street closures, timelines, and parking restrictions can be found on  this page. This interactive feature allows residents to input their home addresses and access parking restrictions in their respective neighborhoods.
