Blackbeard Pirate Festival

2018 Blackbeard Pirate Festival

Once a year visitors from all over the country enjoy the sights and sounds of 18th century Hampton overrun by pirates. Hampton's waterfront comes alive with dozens of pirate re-enactors, costumed in historically accurate garb, who transform today's Hampton into the busy seaport of yesterday. Led by Blackbeard the Pirate himself, re-enactors help visitors step back in time and re-live the history and legends of 1718 Hampton. The Festival offers a variety of children's activities, live musical entertainment, fireworks, period vendors, arts and crafts, and much more!

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please call (757) 727-6387. Many sponsorship levels available; one just right for your organization. If you or your group are interested in volunteering, please call (757) 727-6348.
