Pirates to Invade Ocracoke!

September 29th, 2016 by Fred Westervelt

Good legends are hard to squelch- and this is one of the best…

Re-enactment pirates, a la Blackbeard and friends, are returning to Ocracoke for the 4th Annual Pirate Jamboree October 28-30. This is Aargh and Avast land in spades, with dueling, a ship-to-ship running battle, encampments, handiwork and more.

These have been much fun in recent years, and as a dividend lead into Hallowe’en- costume contest, trick-or-treating and all. Safe and sane.

A complete schedule of events is available at www.ocracokevillage.com.

ARRGH !

August 20th, 2013 by Fred Westervelt

Altho’  quite literate and expressive, Blackbeard and his cronies are frequently depicted as uttering that single word during their predations- so what better way to introduce the forthcoming Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree to be held October 25-27?

Activities will include an historically accurate encampment, an authentic ship-to-ship battle, a scavenger hunt and a memorial to Blackbeard at Springer’s Point (yes, that one just down the road from The Cove) on Sunday morning.. All this will begin the crescendo toward a grand event in 2018, the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s defeat and decapitation by Lt. Maynard, HM Royal Navy.
