EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront for two rollicking days of music, mayhem, and more!  This family-friendly event features activities designed to bring out the “pirate” in everyone.  Costume contests, games, a treasure hunt, pirate re-enactors, and movie on the beach all combine to celebrate those scallywags we all wish we could be: pirates.

When arriving at the Pirate Party on the Beach, beware of those scurvy scallywags, The Moody Crewe.  These pirate re-enactors will be posing for photographs, singing sea shanties, and demonstrating swordplay.  The Moody Crewe loves landlubbers, and this merry band of pirates will entertain as well as educate. Joining the Moody Crewe will be the Loose Cannon Company, Overland, Crew of the Archangel, and Cypher’s Gang.

Other activities throughout the weekend include bandana-making, face-painting, storytelling, weapons demonstrations, and shopping for pirate-themed merchandise.

Pirate re-enactors will abound, with those founding pirates of Pirate Party on the Beach, The Moody Crewe, leading the way with educational displays and lively interaction.  Pirate Party on the Beach is also pleased to welcome Blackbeard’s Crew to the event for the first time!

The Real Mermaids are returning to Pirate Party on the Beach!  Thrill to mermaids swimming in a unique 550 gallon tank!  There will even be opportunities to have your picture taken with a mermaid and to ask questions.

Pirate musicians The Motley Tones and Bob Zentz will entertain with authentic pirate tunes!

Saturday features a full day of activities.  The pirate stunt show by Shadow Players Stage Combat Group features actors in authentic costumes, sword-play, and audience interaction.  The show will be presented several times throughout each day.

On Saturday, participate in Cap’n Pete’s Treasure Hunt, where there’s a real buried treasure.
