Pirates Week, Cayman Islands

Each November, the Cayman Islands hosts its wildly popular 11-day pirate extravaganza that typically attracts 35,000 visitors. First there are fireworks, then a local song contest and a mock invasion where two old-fashioned sailboats packed with pirates make a surprise landing in the George Town harbor. There are parades galore, street dances, games, food and music that sometimes last until the wee hours. Adding to the mayhem is the cardboard boat regatta at George Town harbor. The best part for festivalgoers? It's all free.

Pirates Week will be another eleven fun filled days with music, street dances, competitions, games, wonderful local food and drink, kids day, glittering parade, sports events for everyone, Heritage Days, pirate invasion and fireworks galore! There is just too much going on for you to miss out on.

We start our festival with a fantastic steel pan competition and kick-off party and on Friday night the festival goes off with a bang with a spectacular fireworks display that you will not want to miss! With the crowning of the Festival Queen and the opening Street Dance and Food Festival on that night there is no better place to be in the Caribbean.

On the first Saturday we have a mock ‘pirate invasion’ from the sea! Two old-time sailing vessels, loaded with pirates make a Saturday surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbour with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands of people line the streets to watch the spectacle and its all good-natured fun with a new twist every year. Families just love it. It's the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region.

Keep checking the website for updates and special offers throughout the year. You can also become a fan of the festival on Facebook or follow us on Twitter and if you want to be in the ‘pirate invasion’ or volunteer for the festival then please contact us at [email protected].

The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism has a Visitor Information booth in the Customs hall of the Owen Roberts International Airport. The Visitor Information booth is fully stocked with the latest tourist publications, brochures and other information visitors may need during a visit to the Cayman Islands.

We hope to see you all in November, pirates and landlubbers alike with you all ready to have lots of fun with us in the Cayman Islands.

When is this what date??

The Pirates Week Festival takes place in November each year, with each island celebrating their own weekend. The dates are not yet confirmed for 2018, but will be announced in the new year. 🙂

Caye Zima- check out our old festival - the dogs in pirate garb are adorable. Hopefully Harvey disaster will be rebuilt by the next one we can go!☠️ The Texas Wenches will rise again !

I found some old ones about a month ago on U Tube... I was looking for people we knew... maybe.. it would be great..... <3

We booked our trip to CI without knowing about Pirates Week. We got lucky, it was awesome!!
