The Beaufort Pirate Invasion
August 8th and 9th, 2014

Get in touch with your inner pirate and enjoy two full days of piratical fun at The Beaufort Pirate Invasion. This annual event highlights the rich history of pirates that have pillaged and plundered along the east coast. More specifically it is a re-enactment of an actual historical event that occurred in August of 1747 between the town of Beaufort and a ship of Spanish Privateers.

Enjoy our famous pirate invasion battle along the Beaufort waterfront with Captain Sinbad and the Meka II and Captain Ben Bunn and the Skipjack Ada Mae as they try to take the town. Join the town folks, farmers and the militia in a parade as they march to the waterfront battle to win the town back from nefarious pirates.

Roam through the pirate and militia encampment and see historical demonstrations, sword fighting, cannon firing and weapons demonstrations, mock trial and hanging and so much more. Enjoy authentic Sea Shanties, Pirate songs by The Rusty Cutlass, Motley Tones, Thunder and Spice, and The Commanders.

The children can take part in the Scallywag School presented by Blackbeard’s Crew, have lunch with the pirates or participate in the children’s pirate activities at the North Carolina Maritime Museum. Continue reading...
