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;

This weekend was our year-long planned date for Beaufort Pirate lnvasion. Due to the Plague (Covid-19), we decided to postpone our event. We would like to announce the 1st Annual Beaufort Pirate lnvasion Flotilla to be held this weekend August 8th at 5pm weather permitting. We will leave Gallants Channel at 5pm and proceed Eastward down Front Street towards Beaufort Village and the new Beaufort Hotel. We will be attacking from a distance and urge viewers to distance themselves on shore. Good viewing is at West end of Cedar and anywhere on Front Street. We will also be selling this year's T-shirts and bandana masks at Newton Park and entertaining those who are in Town. Please support this fundraising effort that supports our Invasion each year.

Thanks to all Mateys who took to the high seas and assaulted the Beaufort Hotel, was an awesome display of naval warfare power and everyone at cocktail hour after the ceremony enjoyed it immensely. Timing was absolutely perfect!!

Can someone put me in contact with the Captain in charge of this flotilla? We are scheduled to be married at the Beaufort Hotel this Saturday at 5pm.. need to invoke Parlay ask ask the Captain to please not be early on departure and try to slow your roll toward the Beaufort Hotel a bit.

Ahoy mates! I'm so happy to hear this! Will be ready and waiting! ⚔️⛵️🌊🏝

Thank you for your efforts, we too were excited to be a part of this event..we will hold fast and await for new information and a potential new date. Everyone stay safe 🏴‍☠️☠️🏴‍☠️

Good move, Captain! We don't want to lose anyone! Thanks for your work.

Love your business and your sweet family! Thanks for taking the virus seriously, and I’m praying for you all as you wait to get your business back up and running!

I am thrilled with hope that now I will be able to attend, if Davey Jones be on my side. This hard times for pirates as we are free spirited, huzzah🏴‍☠️

Thank you Carl and all your Pirate Crews. Definitely the right way to recognize our health crisis in the country and keep it from coming to our small town of Beaufort.

Good call, Governor! Enough sickness and death about these days! We have postponed many festivals, fairs, concerts and gatherings in an abundance of caring and concern! Of the financial take away is Sad Tidings in deed! Death is even Dearer! One loss of life is too much and too many! We must think selflessly and not selfishly! There be plenty of Ports and Towns to invade and purge! In the future!!

Although sad, I am happy that all of you will be safe. Thanks for all of your dedication and hard work each year!

We stand by this decision and hope to be part of this great event in the fall. If it's not to be, we will gather next year. Be safe and stay strong.

A sad but good decision. Look forward to a healthier fall and a rescheduled event! Wishing you fair skies and good winds...🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️ This Tampa Pirate will see you then!

I planned for this over a year ago! Reservations made, time off requested (and yes, I'm a nurse)! Proper precautions could still have been taken, just as with all other things going forward are now. Funny how many other gatherings went on and not this one. Summer is just ruined! 😡

Sad to hear, but it is a wise decision. Thank you for being responsible and caring for the your pirates, your town, and all of your visitors that partake in your event.

Sometimes the right thing to do is the hardest decision. We, the members of Blackbeard’s Crew, stand by you. Good call Mate!

Understandable. Thanks to those who put in so much to pull off this amazing event year after year! 🏴‍☠️🖤🏴‍☠️❤️🏴‍☠️🖤🏴‍☠️

Sad but understandable. August was not going to work out for us, but perhaps late fall will be better for all. Be safe everyone!

Well, shoot. Not unexpected, but still disappointing.... I hope it can be rescheduled ASAP!! We miss everybody!

Sad it is postponed...I like the sound of Fall if I get a vote 😂 December is too cold to enjoy being outside by the water for too long lol. I’m a wimp to cold weather 🥶

I'm so sad 💔😭😭😭😭

A sad but good decision. Everyone stay safe!

I hope this finds everyone in good health, til we see each other when the winds blow cooler!! Rest up for the celebration!!

Since when do Pirates bow to any government..

Thank you for the info

A testy but very wise decision!

Truly understandable.

Aye Good call Mates see you when the storm clears Aye..

I think this is the right thing to do.

The Maritime Museum's Gallants Channel property (Great Lawn) will be closed for and during the Beaufort 4th of July fireworks on 7-4-2020 to comply with North Carolina's Safer At Home (Phase 2) Executive Order. The gates will be closed and barricades will be in place on West Beaufort Road Extension (off Highway 70, just before the bridge) to deter traffic and to allow local residents of West Beaufort Road Extension only. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you have a happy and safe 4th! ... See MoreSee Less
