Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree

**Due to the extensive damage Ocracoke suffered as a result of Hurricane Dorian, and the uncertainty of when visitors can safely return to the island, we have decided to cancel the 2019 Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree.**


Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree serves up piratical mischief and good times October 24-27, 2019.

Avast, ye hearties!

Chart your course to Ocracoke Island for Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree, where pirate reenactors and pirate ships will invade the island by land and by sea. The festival offers fun, food and entertainment highlighted by a historically accurate living history Colonial Encampment and a live reenactment of the infamous pirate Blackbeard’s last battle on Silver Lake with cannons blazing. Experience sword fights, musical entertainment, magic shows, historical talks, strolling minstrels, black powder demonstrations, Beer Gardens, arts and crafts vendors and kids’ activities. Visitors are encouraged to dress up in their best pirate gear.
