Gasparilla Invasion

Gasparilla Ship during Invasion

Thank you to all the pirates who joined us for the 2022 Gasparilla Invasion Party.

Together we celebrated this Tampa tradition and raised vital funds for our community projects. Mark your calendars now for next year’s event on January 28, 2023.

Pirates with Purpose

Scallywags and sea rovers alike are invited to The Junior League of Tampa’s annual Gasparilla Invasion Party. Hosted at our Headquarters on Davis Islands, the party attracts over 500 attendees each year to watch Tampa’s famous pirate ship and Gasparilla Flotilla cruise down Seddon Channel.
