The Beaufort Pirate Invasion Begins
For two full days, you can step back in time with the sights and sounds of the 17th century as Beaufort comes alive with over a hundred pirate and militia re-enactors as they overrun the town. Enjoy historical demonstrations such as sword fighting and cannon firing and see black-powder weapons displays, a mock trial and hanging, and so much more.
There will be activities for everyone, young and old, to enjoy throughout town, such as musical entertainment, magic shows, costume contest, storytelling, period encampments, and vendors. With wide eyes and amazement, aspiring young pirates will enjoy the spontaneous shenanigans as the nefarious characters roam the streets and shops, engaging in mock battles, bursting into song, and posing for pictures.
Beaufort Pirate Invasion Mayhem Begins at 9 AM on Friday and Saturday
You can purchase tickets for The Buccaneer Revue, register for The Bottle o’ Run online, and enhance your Beaufort Pirate Invasion experience.
