“19th Annual Blackbeard Pirate Festival” in Downtown Hampton

Brace yourself for a weekend full of swashbuckling excitement! The 19th Annual Blackbeard Festival returns to Downtown Hampton June 2-3.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of Blackbeard and his crew all weekend long. Interact with Blackbeard himself and over 100 other authentically costumed pirate re-enactors as they run rampant on the streets of Downtown Hampton! Saturday and Sunday will include costumed characters and a replica of Blackbeard’s pirate camp, complete with live history interpreters teaching skills of the sailor circa 1700.

This year, the pirates will celebrate the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s notorious demise! There will also be a children’s area with activities including colonial games, pirate face-painting, strolling fairies, digging for treasure and more.

The festivities will take place Saturday from 10am-10pm and Sunday from 12pm-6pm.
