The Beaufort Pirate Invasion is Coming
The Beaufort Pirate Invasion is almost here! Get in touch with your inner pirate and enjoy two days of piratical fun during this family-friendly event in Beaufort, NC.
This annual event highlights the rich history of pirates and privateers that have pillaged and plundered along the east coast. Celebrate Beaufort’s victory when Beaufort comes alive with living history demonstrations, sword fighting, cannon firing, black powder weapons displays, a mock trial, and hanging.
Visit with the ship’s surgeon, make baggy wrinkles, tie knots, watch tools forged over a flaming fire, and watch as pirates prepare meals, making ropes and cleaning weapons.
