Mill Point Park - 100 Eaton Street
The Pirates will take over Downtown Hampton for their annual Blackbeard celebration!
Once a year visitors from all over the country enjoy the sights and sounds of 18th century Hampton overrun by pirates. 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
Once again we shall have grand sea battles & skirmishes, much cannon fire from both ships and along the shoreline and the finest fireworks anywhere!
