The 2020 Blackbeard Pirate Festival has been postponed to June 5-6, 2021 due to COVID-19.
The Blackbeard Pirate Festival descends upon downtown Hampton, Virginia May 30-31, 2020 with FREE fun for all ages, especially the kids!
Celebrating 21 years of one of the top-rated pirate festivals in the world!! Find out why pirate lovers come from all over the country to enjoy the sights and sounds of 18th century Hampton overrun by pirates each year. Hampton’s waterfront comes alive with dozens of pirate re-enactors, costumed in historically accurate garb, who transform today’s Hampton into the busy seaport of yesterday. Led by Blackbeard the Pirate himself, re-enactors help visitors step back in time and re-live the history and legends of 1718 Hampton. The Festival offers a variety of children’s activities, live musical entertainment, fireworks, period vendors, arts and crafts, and much more!

- Saturday, May 30, 2020 from 10am-10pm (fireworks display!)
- Sunday, May 31, 2020 from 12-6pm
