Blackbeard Festival 2017
Hampton steps back in time once again for Blackbeard Festival 2017.
With last years event being named the USA’s 3rd best pirate festival (by USA Today) you sure won’t be disappointed in 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity to step back in time to the the early 18th century and witness Hampton like never before – overrun by pirates!
You can expect fun and festivities for all the family, from special activities for the younger ones right through to live music and entertainment taking place throughout the event, but that’s not all. In what is truly an event not to miss, Blackbeards’ final battle will be reenacted in Hampton harbour, filling the area with the sound of cannon fire.
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
