Pirate_Directory_Beaufort_Pirate_00414Beaufort Pirate Invasion August 7th and 8th 2015

The Beaufort Pirate Invasion is a reenactment of an event that happened in Beaufort in 1747, when the town was caught up in a battle to defend itself from Spanish privateer’s.
This annual event is created to highlight this unique and historical event of victory. The story unfolds on the waterfront at Taylor’s Creek, throughout town and around a pirate encampment located on the Beaufort Historical Grounds. Professional pirate re-enactors, villagers and merchants roam throughout town creating a historical and piratical presence for pirate enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy.

Come August, step back in time with sights and sounds of the 17th century as this sleepy town comes alive with more than 100 pirate actors entertaining the crowds. If you’re lucky, you may spot a Captain Jack Sparrow lookalike. See blackpowder weapons displays, a mock trial and costume contest. Be sure to save some time to picnic by the water and stroll through the North Carolina Maritime Museum, full of cannons and gold guineas recovered from the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Aug. 7-8, 2015;

Throwback Thursday 9-18-2019: Pirate Invasion!

Why do pirates never pay full price? They always wait to get it on sail.

In 1747, Spanish privateers staged a raid on the port town of Beaufort. Thrown off guard at first, the local inhabitants fought back and drove the Spanish away several days later. A similar incident occurred a year later in 1748 just downriver from Wilmington at the port of Brunswick. In 1960, Beaufort firemen participated in a reenactment of raid and the commemorative event became an annual festival. The Pirate Invasion takes place throughout the town drawing pirate reenactors, villagers, merchants, and spectators from across North Carolina, creating a jovial event for all ages. This image shows pirates making their way towards shore during the festival, circa 1983, and can be accessed through the library's Star News Image Archive digital collection (cdm16072.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p15169coll1/id/2458/rec/5).

Commander Carl, thank you so much for allowing my company Skull Jewlery and More to be part of this awesome event. I had a blast a met lots of awesome new peeps. Look forward to returning next year 💀 🦴 🏴‍☠️

Incredible experience! Awesome work by all!

Thanks for having us! Everybody did great! We really enjoyed our first Pirate Invasion! 🍧

My family and I enjoyed our second BPI! My sister Kimberly volunteered there again this year and speaks so highly of you and your crew! Our 3 year old twins loved it and can’t wait to see y’all in Raleigh in a few more weeks. I would like to say a special thanks to Turtle who stopped and took pics with our kids. We had stopped to place flowers in The Old Burying Ground on the graves of our relatives. Our keen-eyed son spotted one last pirate who apparently didn’t make it to the pirate ship before it sailed off. Turtle got out of his truck, dressed back up and posed for pics since our kids were distraught the pirates had left.

Thank you Beaufort Pirate Invasion for an incredible first season experience, and for a wonderful bonding opportunity with my new family. Being able to fully bring my daughters into this world was just icing on an already sweet cake. Looking forward to many many more invasions ☠🇨🇮🏴‍☠️

Thank you once again, i had an excellent invasion, met some old friends and made new ones. The most memorable part was meeting a young visually impaired pirate at the general store during Friday's meet and greet, something I will never forget☠😎☠

Thank you for all the hard work that goes in to putting on this event! (My only complaint was the humidity on Saturday! 🤣) But seriously, we had an absolute blast! Our daughter was so sad to leave! We will hopefully be back next year!!

Great event! I had a blast and got lots of great pictures of the pirates. Arg!

And a Hearty thanks to all of the above, the Town of Beaufort, and to you, Carl, from Tom Mason & The Blue Buccaneers!

Thanks for having us, Carl Cannon. We had a great weekend! Oceanicmermaids.com

Our family..minus one... is a little obsessed with being pirates!! Thank you for all the hard work and planning that goes into the event. This was our 4th year going and we will be back every year!

The face of a determined, future pirate. Thanks for another great Pirate Invasion. Already looking forward to next year. Huzzah!! 🏴‍☠️

Huzzah on a successful pirate invasion. We had a blast, as always. See you all next year ☠️

Such a great weekend! Laura KrawiszAlyce Hopping ☠️🏴‍☠️

Post when you have the dates for 2020. Did you do a Most Wanted this year like last year? That was so much fun.

Merriment was had by all!

Wow! She actually blocked me so I couldn’t defend my position! Tells you the kind of people they were..

My husband Captain Bill enjoyed mingling with the crowd too.

There were a few fights!

Carl I think it deserve an article in the pirate magazine l'Écho des mers. What do you think?

It keeps getting better every year!!

My only complaint and I've heard from many others is the closure of front st. Hopefully next year you will fix this

William Wages

Thank you, Commander Carl and everyone who contributed to BPI this year!! Another year of making memories, thank you all for helping me! We had a blast! See y'all next year!

The city allows leashed dogs throughout the city. There will be "blackpowder" firings from cannons throughout the weekend by land and sea.

Yes, my son will have his there...Cannon fire can startle some dogs...
